Among the acts who have been part of the ant-zen records family, perhaps none of them have carried the banner of heavy but innovative rhythmic industrial music as high as Imminent and Synapscape. This week sees the release of their latest collaborative album The Humanoid Problem, described by the label as a “perfect fusion that catalyzes the intelligence and genius of all three sound technicians into one thinking self-dependent machine”.
The album is a millefeuille of sounds, incorporating layers of rhythm, idm influences, noise and minimalistic soundscapes. It’s a rollicking listen from start to finish, certainly an early high point in 2017’s musical schedule.
To mark the occasion, we have the promotional video for the album, “Virtual Retaliation”. DFM from F Squared Media, a past collaborator with several ant-zen artists, is once again breathing visual life into the track.
