Dither: Amek

     More reviews by
Artist: Dither
Title: Amek
Format: CD
Label: M-Tronic (@)
Rated: *****
Dither's new album "Amek" picks up where their 2003 "Summit" left off in a contiguous and fluid way, just as the tracks in "Amek" are in relation to each other and the unity of the record. "Amek" is a blend of glitch electronics, idm, minimal electronics and other estraneous sporadic musical elements. If I must resort to comparisons, the same old names will be called into the game (Autechre, Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, Gridlock, Richard Devine), but it's fair to say that Dither has been developing his own personal style (while on the side remixing Beefcake, Displacer, Norscq, Mlada Fronta, Mimetic, Flint Glass etc), and even though you might not be able to pick it out of a line-up, it is still worth its dedicated, lonely, relaxed and fully immersed hour of listening. The french scene has definitely a lot of interesting stuff to offer, and thanfully we have M-Tronic in Paris looking out for those artists and the people like us who wanna know about them!
