Comment: behind IASM are two Italian guys who were living in the United Kingdom at the time of the release of this 7-notch issue. More profoundly, it happened already 5 years ago in London. Musically it is an intriguing smorgasbord of sounds and styles, more profoundly, meeting at an interface of modern classical, arty rock and intellectual techno vibes spiced up by elemental noises and hisses. However, the aforementioned styles used to stand to be mixed together or just standing alone. Both versions are equally worth to be enjoyed. Another fairly intriguing stance for me is how and by whom these sounds are made up and performed. Of course, mostly one can discern the human touch but there are up some very mechanical moments where the process seems to be induced and usurped by rigid machines. In a word, there is up a thriving clash between the human soul and austere robotic configurations. By kindred souls one can discern pathways coming from Mice Parade, Tortoise, and The Dylan Group to Autechre, AFX, and Venetian Snares to Lubomir Melnyk, and Nils Frahm. However, these ones are just mere comparisons because the artist used to stand on its own. The issue is a part of the discography of Yo [U-Turn] netlabel. In a nutshell, get this mesmerizing issue.
