Genre/Influences: Experimental, electro-minimal, cinematographic.

SoiledContent: Marcus H is the artist operating behind Soiled. This is the 4th opus by this creative experimentalist who’s does not release new work on regular basis.

“Splices & Phases” stands for a deeply minimal creation focusing on electronic manipulations. The experimental approach is rather accessible and often appearing to be a kind of etude for electronic sound research. The tracks reveal cool electro signals, which are sometimes joined by a low and somewhat abstract cadence. Other songs have been carried by impressive, deep vibrating vibes while kind of metallic-like bleeps emerge from another cut.

The work of Soiled has often been very diverse and this new album continues to fit that description. The main basis remains electro-like, but you also will notice guitar parts. Aside of the electro-minimalism and multiple noise treatments this work also reveals a soundtrack approach. I can perfectly imagine a track like “Repitch & Languish” used for a short film and/or documentary. “Footsteps” sounds a little bit more into experimentalism, but still embodies the cinematographic genre.

This CD format is a limited to 50 copies, and you’ll not regret the content and the artistic digipak format.

Conclusion: Soiled remains experimental-like, but the sound is accessible for all lovers of minimal electronic experiences.

Best songs: “Autumn In Flashbacks”, “Creepy Crawling & Drifting”, “Its Fear In The Amygdala”.

Rate: (DP:7)DP.
