Breaths Written Outside Gloom
French producer Voiski's Breaths Written Outside Gloom features four cuts of his trademark techno, following solo and collaborative releases on L.I.E.S., Syncrophone, and others. The menacing bassline of opener "Downhearted Holidays" looms large below jostling metal percussion and frazzled synth lines. It's spare and absorbing; inhuman and bleak -- in the most inviting way. "Galaxy Call" is more energetic with squeaking, pixelated, high-pitched melodies squealing over a gloomy, gloopy bass line and militant snares. "Mathematical Park" is about mid-tempo drums and paranoid synth drones; on "Answer Silently," a growing sense of darkness permeates slithering synths, icy hi-hats, and lazy drums.
