"Underling is about edges -- those between sound and space, time and place. Underling will set you on a pier overlooking a thousand oceans and ten thousand continents. It will transform you into a single point where all the countless micro-things surrounding you are on a universal scale. Listen with a microscope or telescope. Underling rides the boundary between instantaneous and infinite. Using an interconnected feedback path with several banks of parallel processors that resemble a subway map of Tokyo. This album is the second in a series of twelve releases on Jake Mandell's own Kodama label. With acclaimed releases on Force Inc/Mille Plateaux, Worm Interface, Carpark, and Beta Bodega, Mandell has established himself as one of the leading electronic producers. Recording under his given name for this series, Jake advances his exploration of contrast between his trademark ultra-programming and the micro-minimalism established in Healing and continuing now with Underling."
