Fresh off the back of its previous EP on bbbbbb, Cucumb45 presents another outstanding release.
Whilst the recent ‘Something Weirdcore’ challenged our understanding of genre, the latest release takes things further, playing with our perception of acoustic space.
Immersive textures are introduced without warning, just as quickly as they are withdrawn, never to be heard again. From the nostalgic harmonies of ‘Cyxlobblobs5’ to the unnerving glitches of the title track, high velocity drums of ‘Aqua Elba’ and mangled juke patterns of ‘CATpitchd5’, the EP darts its way through a range of new territories without hesitation.
Never one to conform, Cucumb45 rejects familiar structures, rapidly jumping between ideas whilst manipulating the physical properties of his sound.

Soothing glitch-electronica that is rarely made by artists, especially these days. Whole album's an auroratic journey, coasting on distilled sunbeams and held by together by gentle snowflakes. I don't usually namedrop other artists, but if you enjoyed the works of Boards of Canada and christ., you'll feel right at home here.
Looking forward to next release! Hoping they do more in the vein of "Two-brainedness" and "Healthy Texting"! Moonholders

Could it be that this guy is the momentary hottest thing? This balance between classic rave and modernist minimality just kicks butts in circles. TRIP is the label of the hour, Bjarki a welcome surprise and label boss Nina the long awaited visionary behind it. Totally impressive listener. teejay1974
