Darkening The Shadow

074After releasing music through a number of labels including Rush Hour and Delsin, the music of Berlin based British producer Ben Thomas, better known as BNJMN, has found a new home with his own freshly minted Brack imprint. Billed as an ‘entirely new and different project’, the inaugural twelve inch which is out early next month see’s Thomas moving away from machine-tooled digital compositions in favour something darker and dirtier. An unquestionable raw sounding retro mix of layered distorted samples, heavy synths and rough drums combine over three tracks which begin with the thumping, hypnotic groove of ‘Luster’ and continue with the muffled, murky late night claustrophobic rhythms of ‘Penumbra’, before ending with the steady, subterranean techno lean of ‘Keel’. If you missed his recent collaborative ‘De/Re-Constuctions’ release with Portland based Best Available Technology on Astro:Dynamics, there’s something about that here.
