[SOP 040-1318] Tonal Verges – Songs For Mike
For way too long veteran producer Tonal Verges has let us cool our heels since his EPs for SOP and ZUUR – but now the wait is over: Four tracks of analogue sounding, profound and doomed electro techno and a concept that relates to Twin peaks obviously. Tonal Verges kicks it off slow and lurching, with razor-sharp hi-hats, belching bass and alluring melody lines, tapping deep into the consciousness of electro techno history with a nod towards Detroit; and it’s with “The White Of The Eyes” that more sturdy beat patterns fly in, catering for massive crossover potential with contemporary industrial techno and doomcore.
Simultaneously released with “Songs For Mike” on the Ketacore label, which can be considered as the other half (one could say döppelganger) of this release. This “damn fine music” can be found here, to complete the experience:
