1) Interdimensional journeys lay ahead as Volruptus lands on трип with a 5-track tour of his alternate reality.
Androids navigate their way through deep space, determined to find more. One minute they’re floating, the next, racing through a continuum at twice the speed of light. Sharp broken beats create a framework for immersive pads, glitchy inflections and acid bass to wander.
Volruptus holds a state of the art lens to classic electro, exploring its form with the meticulous detail of a true audiophile. This one’s for the psychonauts.
2) Nina Kraviz was clearly a fan of Volruptus's debut 12" on BBBBBB, because she's releasing the follow-up on her Trip label. As with its' acclaimed predecessor, Hessdalen is jam-packed with bustling, floor-friendly electro inspired by deep space and produced in Reykjavik. The title track races along at quite a lick thanks to bustling beatbox drums, rumbling 808 bass and bleeping melodies, while "We'll Be Alright" sees the publicity-shy producer reach for the TB-303 on a deep, woozy and intergalactic IDM shuffler. You'll find spacey dub influences bubbling to the surface on EP highlight "Time Travel", before closer "Alien People" sees Volruptus celebrate the "braindance"-era Rephlex catalogue with the assistance of ragged acid lines, dreamy chords and high-octane machine drums.
