FNOOB DiGiTAL presents _Vandalism_, five tracks worth of heavy pounding
dystopian soundscapes with just a kiss of industrial edge from
Paderborn, Germany techno producer Julian Morawe.
Mr. Morawe brings influence from his background as a guitarist in
hardcore punk and noise music, and it shows in his sound design for the
tonal and percussive sounds. He lists a number of different inspirations
in this work, among them brutalist architecture, midwestern American
techno, science fiction, and, interestingly, the randomness of quantum
physics. Here's what he has to say about the title: 'For me vandalism
stands for the idea of making negative and destructive music or art and
creating very positive vibes with it!'
The title track features a leaden kick and discordant pads building into
phrenetic claps and hi-hats in a pulsating peak hour banger. Track 2,
'Vertical City', maintains high pressure and a throbbing kick but goes a
bit more hypnotic, with polyrhythmic acid synth playing off a 4/4
kick-snare pattern. The third track, 'Your Future', is bathed in reverb
and sequence. 'Radiance', track 4, backs off of the synth, bringing
focus back to the kick and percussion. The final track, 'Anima', comes
with a fluttering percussive synth that provides flavorful sound design
and a fitting conclusion to this release.
