Aux Field’s ‘Imaginable Layers’ for Umor Rex
Mexico’s Umor Rex label has coming up several releases to welcome in the new year. German duo Driftmachine’s Eis Heauton, Aux Field’s Imaginable Layers and B/B/S/’s NK012 (a trio formed of Aidan Baker, Andrea Belfi and Erik Skodvin aka Svarte Greiner aka half of Norway’s Deaf Center).
For us Aux Field’s 44 minute Imaginable Layers stands out from the crowd. It’s really sounding like something very special indeed. Based out of Tbilisi in Georgia, Aux Field is the work of one Rezo Glonti and the sound within fits the beautiful imagery of the city.
Aux Field is Glonti’s new project and the first release (hopefully of many) under that name. Releasing music under his own name since 2010 on various labels including Poland’s AudioTONG, California’s Time Released Sound and Australia’s Flaming Pines; Aux Field is a project based on exploring sound through a hands on approach. That approach being the modulation of analog hardware machines. Umor Rex describe the album thus –
a mixture of a modern rhythmic and dynamic ambient music and the old school electronic German avant-garde
The result of which is captivating, gentle and actually quite emotive. Pulsing, rich, thick electronica on a rhythmic but beatless headphone trip out. A shift from his earlier shimmering drone, as heard on his 2013 EP – Late Night Driving for Flaming Pines.
Take a listen to album opener Station III.
Available January 27th on strictly limited pro-dubbed cassette tape and digital formats. An early Darkfloor fave for 2015.
