Berlin-based duo Driftmachine returns with another striking piece of music. “Colliding Contours” is a shape-shifting album made from kosmische, dub, Industrial and Avant-garde elements. It’s all held together by tense grooves and a post-club, eerie electronic atmosphere.
The latest work of Driftmachine offers a complex dialogue between genres and music styles, transcending the familiar by generating a peculiar mood through its unique take on modular synthesis and its obsessive bass-structures and detailed rhythmic patterns. Within the haunted electronic spaces of “Colliding Contours” one can find a geometry made of dub, jazz and industrial techno lines, intersecting at ominous intervals; an unsettling companion for a late night trip or a tangled state of mind.
