Hendrik Weber, aka Pantha du Prince, crafts clinically precise techno with only the most Spartanic array of sounds, deploying slight sketches of percussive loops, hints of chordal vibrance, a rare guest vocalist (solely Noah Lennox so far), and a sparse sample of bells or chimes. Elements of Light, Weber's first LP since his 2010 breakout, Black Noise, maintains Pantha's singular electronic vision but with a modern classical gaze. The shifting and phasing of themes and melodies could be a reimagining of Steve Reich's "Music for 18 Musicians." Each theme is presented organically and allowed just enough time to get comfortable before Weber dissects and processes the beauty of each moment within. It's a percussive exercise that blurs the line between symphonic experimentation and dance music. (4 out of 5 stars)
I would say that Adron is the city's most liked indie artist. I've never heard…
um...the posters name is Buttercrup, not Buttercup.
Why is that? I don't begrudge the Progression of the Artform... I begrudge the Educational…
Thank you for the catch, Buttercup. Her name has been corrected.
These underground NY rappers need to take their sound back to NY...circa 1987!
