about

People often talk of music sounding 'cinematic' but rarely is that premise delivered with such depth and intensity as it is here by Synthamesk.
The Regression LP employs the heavily dynamic and impactful multi-instrumental approach one associates with the most accomplished film scores, yet is driven at breakneck speed by a frenetic and beautifully-crafted array of drums and percussion.
This masterpiece of composition and performance shifts seamlessly through multiple time signatures, time periods and musical moods, as if taking us on a journey through the history of cinema. At times building suspense and horror, with larger than life horns and the choir from the Omen. At other times mockingly playful, serene little moments where imps whisper, laugh and flutter their harps before the further brutality ensues.
The clever use of vocal samples helps to contextualize the listening experience, whilst also being subtle enough to skirt around clichés, or at least dance tauntingly with them, and yet never impose a strong narrative of their own on you.
It's breakcore sure, and you can certainly expect a fair amount of mind warping manipulation on the basic jungle breaks alongside gargantuan kick drums, all spun mercilessly through dazzling distortions and filters which whirl the sound around in 3d space.
However Regression offers so much more, the multi-instrumentalist and mentalist Synthamesk glides effortlessly around the world of music, from the classically cinematic large orchestral sound to that of intimate chambers, gothic horror, delicate swung jazz bands, synthfunk, early 90s bleep and techno, grime and neuro DNB to create a world that is both impressively diverse but yet also immediate, dynamic and essential.
