Of all the young lo-fi-house certified labels that surfaced over the past couple of years, Alex Hall’s Natural Sciences rapidly stood out, not only because of its naive dolphin-friendly appeal but well thanks to a particularly tasteful curation – creaming off the finest of what the neo-independent Soundcloud era has to offer without hoodwinking itself as for the imbalance between the quale and quantum of material available.
Carried by this trustworthy outlook, the Manchester-based imprint did a great job of collating top-drawer releases from the likes of Aquarium, Antonio or Warren Raww, to name a few. For this new outing, Hall enlisted Mono-Enzyme 307 – an up-and-coming producer from Paris whose only line on the CV is a single split for local French label Acid Avengers.
Our premiere, the effusive acid heater ‘Inner Skill‘ roots deep into off-kilter psychotropic grounds. Interlocking helter-skelter 303 lines with screeching keyboards gone astray, it’s a frantic safari ride across a lost mystic jungle ; colours and shapes flickering dangerously as the rhythm revs up and totemic percussions hammer out a fierce archaic pulse. Savage.
Adventure In Cryosleep is released via Natural Sciences on, pre-order a vinyl copy from Juno.
