Full release delivered on release date: 29.11.19

Just a few short weeks on from his excellent Kestrel Manoeuvres In The Dark EP, Datassette becomes the first artist to put out a solo release on Future Massive. After the label threw down the gauntlet with their impressive Volume 1 compilation back in April - an LP that featured The Gasman, Rolando Simmons and Plant43 - Existenzmaximum continues to cement their reputation as an exciting new force in the world of electro and contemporary IDM.

As is often the case when it comes to Datassette drops, Existenzmaximum covers a lot of stylistic ground. Opener ‘Shooz Who’ is detailed watercolour IDM that draws as much from Jean-Michel Jarre’s busy harmonies as it does from modern-day practitioners like, say, Brainwaltzera. ‘Mechanical Advantage’ strips out the beats and muffles its synths to leave it skirting close to Lorenzo Senni territory. Existenzmaximum’s title-track wobbles between unidentifiable glitching, future-garage and the jazzified house sound of early Eglo Records - the latter of which rears its head again on burbling closer ‘Drinking Paint’, a cut that could quite easily have fitted into Floating Points’ Shadows EP. Much like fellow elite proponents of IDM, braindance and other more ‘experimental’ kinds of dance music, Datassette manages to strike a good balance between tinkering and groove across Existenzmaximum’s five tracks.

Datassette and Future Massive team up for the quirky and innovative Existenzmaximum EP.
