cryosleep dreyt nien


This is it, kids. This is the crazy future music that your parents warned you about. Cryosleep is a new full-length from dreyt nien, exclusively released on the Japanese label Seikomart. Cryosleep incorporates vaporwave, vaporhop, and modern electronica in a way that doesn’t really conform to any standard of subgenre, so good luck on this album description actually saying anything right. The record incorporates a variety of samples, especially spoken word portions, and frequently includes polyrhythmic percussion loops with different sources layered on one another, akin to some forms of ’06-’09 UK garage music. There are several icy ambient sections (e.g. “music for freezers”, and the pun was not intentional) and others that elicit early IDM/Autechre (e.g. “neuro punk memeplex recombinaison”). Choice track is the first, “nouvelle vie”. The album is available as a pay-what-you-want digital download.

Sunbleach // Impossible to forget


Here’s some signalwave played straight by dreyt nien on an album called Impossible to Forget. This album’s thirty-one tracks include a variety of extremely short snippets that are repeated and affected with a lo-fi production sheen. It’s a bit more twisted and noisy than the morose surreality of Infinity Frequencies’ Computer trilogy. Recommended for fans of PURE TRANCE by INTERNET CLUB. It’s available as a pay-what-you-want digital download.

Vers Du Silence

Dreyt Nien est un monde sonore étrange.
Aux commandes de ce projet de drones entêtants, de sculptures linéaires et emballants le silence, Dawid Huck. Ce sorcier et alchimiste contemporain nous entraine dans un univers baroque, abolissant les frontières de l'espace/temps.
Ses voyages, enivrants et hypnotiques, sont autant de tableaux et de découvertes auditives.
Là où coulent ses pistes musicales s'ouvrent autant de déserts que d'étendues urbaines...
Nous partons du connu pour l'inconnu.

Neurodrones Vol.1, dernier projet en date, est sorti en décembre.
Utilisant comme support exclusif les cassettes à petite bande, Dawid Huck complémente ainsi l'expérience musicale par l'objet. Dans cette production, son élaboration particulière a été construite et pensée comme un concept global.

Cassette Gods, les rivieres de la nuit

There’s an ancient proverb that goes, “In space, no one can hear you scream.” Those who intoned these mystical words forgot one important thing – in space, no one can hear you do anything. No one can hear you jog along the corridor of your spacecraft. No one can hear you prepare your space food in the galley. No one can hear you practice your modular synthesizer in your cabin. It’s space fact – there’s no freaking sound.

Fortunately, in space, everyone can hear Dreyt Nien for some reason, because Dreyt Nien has the ability to transcend physical limitations. Or maybe my enthusiasm for Alien references led me down a rabbit hole I’ll never escape. Either way, Dreyt Nien does have the ability to transmit his modular synthesizer compositions in a wavelength that’s translatable to the human ear, and we’re all the better for it. The mysterious French composer has a distinct and possibly disturbing fascination with the outer limits of the human ability to adapt to non-Earth conditions, and that combination of isolation and discovery serves to focus Les Rivières de la Nuit (“Rivers of the Night” – am I the only one getting the deep space vibe, then?) in enthralling ways.
Les Rivières de la Nuit recalls modular synth maestros ranging from Morton Subotnick to Keith Fullerton Whitman, and can find modern tape-scene equivalents in the work of Hollowfonts, Mortuus Auris and the Black Hand, and the White Reeves Productions crew. The tape varies within a defined space, not veering too far beyond “chilling” or “tense,” if at all. There’s the creeping miasma of the title track, the percussive dread of “Psychopods,” the decaying AI of “Ici Sont Des Dragons,” and the minuscule malfunctions threatening disaster of “Dix Neuf Abîmes.” I think it’s safe to say that Dreyt Nien has harnessed a distinct vibe.

If there was ever a moment to remind you that you should always take every precaution while on a maintenance spacewalk outside your craft, now’s the time, because Les Rivières de la Nuit is the soundtrack to everything going wrong, resulting in your permanent separation.  There’s no more safety after that. Maybe your comm will work for a little while as you drift, watching your ship get smaller and smaller as it moves away from you, and you can talk to your crewmates to give your good-byes. Or maybe you will scream, in panic, until there’s only static. The possibilities are endless! Let Dreyt Nien guide you to your doom, possibly in the form of getting hit by a passing asteroid.
Oh, uh, tapes are sold out from the label, better hit up the artist page, and quick!

Great release on ERR REC from DREYT NIEN aka David Laika

This is a 100% ‪#‎modularsynth‬ based record that heavily utilized Make Noise and Grant Richter modules.

If you are short on time hit tracks 1 and 3 and catch track 4 later when you need to loose your head a bit :)
