HPX58 - THE ADVENT - HIGHER LEARNING
Having made a debut on H-Productions back in March alongside regular studio partner, Industrialyzer, this latest three-track EP marks The Advent’s first solo work for the label; cementing an exciting partnership with Cari Lekebusch’s seminal imprint. A new school alliance of old school names that will see the release of The Advent’s tenth studio album in June 2012.
Title track, Higher Learning, sets the futuristic ‘sci-fi’ feel for this EP with its linear robotic groove, vocoder vocal stabs and high-end frequencies creating a synthetic soup of mechanical sounds, bleeps and squeaks.
Distract injects yet more textured layers to the release with a purposeful, percussive groove providing the foundation for bubbling melancholic melodies and drawn out harmonic yawns to craft a deep but driving feel.
The package culminates with Nexus 22; a fusion of unrelenting swinging rhythms and cinematic hooks that flip from sinister, otherworldly mood setting melodies to hauntingly shrill harmonics, floating throughout the mix.
