Description

Ambitious and captivating; expansive, textured and unique, this is the sound of Herd.

Since we began our record label, like the radio show and blog from which it spawned, we’ve never been just one style, one sound.

Since 2007 via several net based labels, Herd has worked on a multi-part series of ‘Tangents’ – abstract experimental electro, ambient electronica and drone soundscape material. ‘Arteater’ continues in that vein of sonic tapestry, yet is very much its own complete piece. Herd’s influence is drawn from many places, most obviously that of Future Sound of London. Impressed enough were they the duo have released material of his via their own FSOLdigital imprint.

Pushing the limits of vinyl recording length we cut close to 20 minutes a side of sound without comprising on quality. We work closely with our mastering and cutting engineers, none more so than on this release.

We could continue writing fancy, descriptive words, but as with all our releases, we let our music do the talking, and there’s a lot to hear in this one.

I'm bouncing up and down in my office chair right now. I think that one is my favourite. But all in all the release is great. " Orphx (Sonic Groove, Hands Productions, Hymen) "Yeah, thanks again for that EP. I liked it all (except maybe the B2) but the A2 was my fav - killer track. Hope to use it for a mix when I have time to make another one." Bas Mooy (Mord, Planet Rhythm, Mote-Evolver) "Lag + Forest People's track is my pick" Truss (Avian, Perc Trax, R&S Records) "Lag and Vacated tracks are both great. Very strong EP overall." Israel Vines (Eye Teeth, Borrowed Language) "Hot EP all the way 'round, but my favourites are the Lag + Forest People and Ruins cuts. Super ace those two." Coefficient (Duality, Labrynth, M_REC) "A nice varied EP this one. Will play the Lag + Forest People track the most. Also like the deepness of the Matt TdK track too. Good stuff!" Dronelock (Shadow Story, Weekend World) "EP is great." Jesse Somfay (Borealis) (Detroit Underground,  Origami Sound) "I have just had a full listen of the EP and I think it’s very nice work. I preferred the more abstract A Side tracks overall." Data Transmission 02.04.2015 "Mechanistic Overlap, the latest vinyl print from, underground cult label/radio station/blog Darkfloor Sound is a beastly slab of dirty techno influenced madness from five distinctly different, but aesthetically similar artists. And when a record gets big thumbs up from Objekt you know you are onto a winner. Vacated’s ‘RM2 (re-edit)’ - a filthy, dancefloor infusion of Akkord-esque drum patterns that have been dragged through a hedge backwards, Perc and Truss style distortion treatments, washes of reverb soaked industrial atmospherics and a hard, repetitive, subtly modulated bassline that will properly merk up any dance."
