Ambitious. Captivating. Textured, And, unique. This is the sound of Herd. Darkfloor Sound has, like our show Mantis Radio, never been one sound, one style. We are greater than the sum of our parts, and that is exactly what Herd presents on ARTEATER.

Since 2007 across several net labels Herd has worked on a multi-part series of abstract electro, ambient electronics, and drone soundscape material, collectively entitled Tangents. ARTEATER continues 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 (FSOL) but is sound is no mere copy. Herd’s sonic world is his, deeply immersive, and richly narrative. FSOL felt the same releasing some of his material on their own imprint FSOLdigital just before this EP was released.

From a technical point of view, we have pushed the limits of vinyl recording length. Cutting close to 20 minutes of sound a side, without comprising on quality. We work closely with our mastering and cutting engineers on all our releases, none more so than on this one.

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 ARTEATER.

David Meiser - Inigo Kennedy (Token, Rodz Konez, Stroboscopic Artefacts) "DRKFLR003 sounds great! Like A1 and A2 the most I think. Will give them a blast at the weekend!" Coefficient (Duality, Labrynth, M_REC) "Really like the B side tracks on this release. 'Know Your Root's reminds me of some early Oliver Ho releases on Meta. 'Transcending Your Fears' is also nicely dark. Full support!" Dare&Haste (Pareto Park, Trust) "Soviet Rules is the perfect example of why Meiser is one of my favourite producers. Twisted, dark, intelligent & hard as nails. The relentless synth work & punishing drum work is right up my street. Coupled with the speech samples I'm totally sold. More!!!" George Lanham (Engineroom, Pareto Park, The Public Stand) "These are great tracks, proper techno." Objekt (PAN, Leisure System, Hessle Audio) "it's a solid release but a bit too main-room warehousey for me if i'm honest."
