“Bavarian based sound designer and electronic artist Markus Mehr carries on here his creative and productive collaboration with the now classic label Hidden Shoal Recordings. This time Markus invited a handful of artists to remix his latest recordings collected in the recommended binary rooms. The listener is immersed in a dense, tense, refined and exceptionally moving semi jazzy inflected minimal electronic experience.
First remix by Incite encompasses the aesthetics of abstract modern glitch-ambient and modern classical music with treated minimal piano touches and kinetic electronic scintillations. Very sculptural, hypnotic and pulsating this track reveals lovely textured sound ambiences in a brilliant elegant mood. While Conga Fever’s remix is a punchy, efficient and groovy cinematic electronic interlude, Erik Nilsson’s remix is a more modern classical / ambient electronic affair where acoustic detached-semi romantic timbres meet systemic and menacing electronic motifs. A well nuanced and evocative track. David Koch’s remix is surfing on the same stylistic path with a very seducing and alluring approach on minimal electronics. A cohesive, dynamic, emotionally vibrant and greatly orchestrated album from start to the end. It will definitely convince fans of Markus Mehr’s original musical syncretism as well as fans of IDM and post-techno ambient manifests. A great musical companion to the excellent Binary Rooms.”
