Headless Horseman returns to 47 for the label’s first 2018 release, 47014. The new solo EP will drop as 12” vinyl and digital download via Tommy Four Seven’s imprint on February 23rd.
The four tracker features dense techno with individual moods. “Revelation" is a downbeat lurching machine-giant with repeat climaxes. “Concussion" is broken and feverish, with sculpted layers of pressure. The momentum of “Locust" drives on the edge of an untravelled path and cannot rest. The final track "Gravity" is subtle and snarling, with a slowly ascending melody, scraping against future and past.
Pearl black techno from the shady edges of a decayed forest, Headless Horseman's music doesn't let the light filter through its dead branches slowly waving to an eternal cold breeze.
Unstoppable asymetric rhythms support distant industrial recollections and dark shamanic atmospheres from a faded mecanical era, emerging as a carved up figure, half-machine and half-human.
This album is the perfect companion to those who seek sunless territories, roamed by murky stampedes of lifeless horseriders. Dotflac
