Ten years after self-titled debut full-length, Hungarian London-based artist and producer Blackfilm announced the release of his second album. Zero One Seven is out on September 28th via Denovali Records. “Gone” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
On „Zero One Seven“, Blackfilm merges tracks spanning across drum and bass, dub and electronic. The sounds on the album are built from the ideas on the original Blackfilm „S/T“ and „Along the Corridors“ and progress to a sound built on new ground mixing modern production techniques and influences while at times referencing the Blackfilm sound we know from his previous releases.
The album maintains a consistent focus on atmospherics, beats and heavy bass ranging from darker dub and drum and bass influences to vocal tracks and complex ambient soundscapes. Production wise, the familiar Blackfilm style incorporating the use of synthetic sounds mixed with samples enables the album to create an intriguing, shifting atmosphere as the album progresses. A dystopian journey through haunting vocals, hypnotic drum patterns and complex sound design.
The album release is preceded by the release of the digital-only EP ‘Gone / Blackmark’ containing two eponymous non-album tracks.
