OUT NOW 🙂
releases July 8th, 2022
Deli Kuvveti is a Laptop soundsmith, texture miner, and noisenik based in Seattle, Washington. After hearing Even After released on Active Listeners Club, I was drawn in deeply to his body of work, including self-released Under a Blue Moon & Corridors, and recently `Machines have their own agenda` on EVEL. Naturally, I was super stoked when he reached out to us with Erato.
Erato is Kuvveti's latest sonic collection of delicious textural bubble baths. Swathed in synthetic scrapes, resonant plucks, derezed slurps, swirling feedback, and drone haze (it's a sonic buffet really): Erato is immersive, atmospheric, contemplative, and in a serious way, moving.
Nil and I think at times Erato evokes a more abstract Fennesz - Venice; it's nuanced, layered, uninhibited, and often full of warmth… and for me, it has a certain temporal transportative quality (timebending or time travelling or both?) that is enduring and continually amazes me. Deli Kuvveti told us he utilizes Max/MSP for his FM Synthesis based goodness, rhythmic patterning, spatialization, and rich textural tapestries. Sound palletes are structured, enmeshed, and interrelated in either Max or Ableton.
Droney, shimmering, even soothing passages collide with playful kindred spirits dancing to digital elf forest songs. Whimsical. Wonderful.
