Delayscape – VCOs or DCOs EP {mtk199}

Artist: Delayscape
Title:
 VCOs or DCOs EP
Label:
Monotonik
Catalog #:

Release Date:
2008/03/16


Danish idm musician Delayscape has been prolific since his debut ‘Everybody Drops’ release for Monotonik in 2006, with releases on netlabels including Acrylik, Musicartistry and Cold Room, and we’re delighted to welcome him back to us with the funky, borderline squelchy electronics of ‘VCOs or DCOS’.

It all starts out with ‘Patch Point Blank’, which throws around the fuzzy warbles in alluring ways, before ‘Breaking The Square Waves’ gets funkier still, with some surprisingly guttural synth noises and hippedup drums infusing the EP with a little grit.

Some of the later highlights of this 5-track EP include ‘2am’, which echoes out some almost dub techno effects, before ‘Trains Not Taken’ ends things up on an almost ’80s-infused Vangelis-y vibe, oddly but happily. Overall, a smileworthy second release for us – thanks to Delayscape again for proffering the goods.

Delayscape – Everybody Drops EP {mtk168}

Artist: Delayscape
Title:
Everybody Drops EP
Label:
Monotonik
Catalog #:

Release Date:
2006/07/16


We’re proud to present a Monotonik debut from Danish artist Delayscape, formerly part of the electronic collective Swimwear Catalogue, which has released CDs on April Records and Hypnotic in Denmark. As Delayscape, he’s released on net.labels Acrylik and Clusterflux, and also plays live in a band called Rainscape, but for this first Monotonik EP, ‘Everybody Drops’, it’s terse melodic electro all the way to the bank.

Thus, we start out with the title track, all slow-motion popping and locking, with a distinctly funkier, less idm sound than a lot of recent releases on Monotonik, phasing to the fore, before ‘February One’ loops melodies happily and incessantly, and we move on to the borderline sinister ‘Laugh Track’, regular beats and odd chuckles ahoy.

Finally, we have the semi-glacial ‘Slow..’, which blossoms into a surprisingly beautiful track, and the closing tongue-twister ‘Portamento Portmanteau’, which slides around gloriously in the name of slick electronics. Altogether, a most fun debut from Delayscape, and we hope he’ll be back soon to pretty up the environment with his smart electronics.
