Darkness is closely bound to mysteriousness and thrilling paranoia. Slower tempos, lower basses, filtered voices, whispers and dissonant layers of synthesizers. Through the murky minimalism come Raime, whose debut EP (buy it at Boomkat) is released via appropriately named Blackest Ever Black label. Resident Advisor made an interesting interview with its founder, Kiran Sande. Almost nothing is known about Raime, but as always, important is the art, not face.
Scratchy drums open ‘This Foundry’ that is too slow for dancing, but too gloomy and unsettling to take it as a meditative song. As you can guess by the song’s name, fragments of shady melody are poured into mass of atonal rhythmic pieces backed by the basic rhythms floating around. The same tricks are used in ‘We Must Hunt Under The Wreckage Of Many Systems’ that is even more abstract and haunting. Horror-like vibrations of disharmony materialize many phobias hidden in the dark corner of the mind. As you expected, this ever-present cold and uneasy mood won’t leave. Darkness is inside of our souls forever.Tweet
