Kicks, hats, snares, basslines. And a few samples and noises. Old school technoids in other words.
ps stamps back used dreadbox erebus and mfb doninion to make the Bass; jason bakey, ableton live to make the Rhythms. the noises and samples, they shared.
c-drik mastered the whole thing.
I don’t think I heard of Nihil Verum before and the website says: “ps stamps back used dreadbox erebus and mfb doninion to make the Bass; jason bakey, ableton live to make the Rhythms. the noises and samples, they shared”. I vaguely have an idea what that means. Four pieces here, lasting twenty-seven minutes, which seems a bit short to me. Maybe, so I was thinking when I was playing this, PS Stamps Back changed his own music and made it less techno, because he now has Nihil Verum to do work with rhythms. The four pieces are all about a nice kick drum, a crashing of hi-hats and a bouncing bass line, and the outcome is some excellent retro acid techno music. Not super fast, but also not very slick. There is exactly that rough edge around the music that I like. Be it a wacky sound from a synth, a field recording of insects or voice sampled from
television. It is not for me to say if this is the kind of music that should do well on the dance floor, but I surely can imagine an alternative scene in which people dance to this roughness. (vital weekly)
