Experimental electronic producer Crewdson released his album this week and it appears to have as many sounds going on within it as physically possible. I’m not sure whether this is a great thing or a terrible thing.
Some would call it ‘post-dubstep’ as it sounds slightly similar to the music which the likes of Mount Kimbie create but still, I cannot accept this title. How does this ‘post-dubstep’ sound anything like dubstep? How did its name derive?
All labels aside, this is an incredibly interesting album. It contains trumpets, percussive beats, glitchy electronic rhythms and strange and distorted vocal samples. At times, this music sounds like a broken nineties UK Garage record mixed with a broken printer, mixed with a cat playing a keyboard, mixed with a poorly receptive radio. I’m not sure if this is a particularly good thing, but for some reason, I actually rather like listening to this album whilst relaxing in my bedroom. It’s certainly far from smooth as it’s so intentionally staccato.
Who knew that something which sounds so purposely baffling and disorganised could sound so soothing. I think that if this is the sort of music which you like to listen to, then you’ll love this.
