Japanese artist ENA (last heard turning out experimental drum & bass on Samurai Horo) inaugurates new label NILOS with a concept album consisting of one 40 minute long track. NILOS comes from the organisation behind the fashion brand Julius, known for its industrial ethos. Fittingly, ENA’s composition consists of atmospheric, jungle-rooted noise excursions halfway between Demdike Stare and FIS. The sound shifts between haunting atmospherics and bucolic pastoral – as soon as you feel it leaning too hard in one direction it moves somewhere else, keeping you on your toes, and giving faint outline to a rich narrative.
