Austrian producer Mosch releases his debut album “Metamorphosis As A Metaphor” on the Duzz Down San label, the label that he in fact runs. Although new to me, Duzz Down San are known for putting out forward thinking hip hop, “Metamorphosis As A Metaphor” continues to stretch their remit wider.
This is an album that lands somewhere between IDM, electronica, ambient, hip hop, it fits different genre and different moods, which is a large part of its appeal. There are electronic, beat driven tracks, delicate ambient soundscapes, and tracks that are somewhere in between. One comment element to the album is its heavy use of electronic, almost ping-pongish percussion. There is so much going on in each track, even at its most ambient it still holds your attention. Also there is a real warmth to the overall sound, even with its stark, robotic mainframe, there is always the warmth of a bass line or guitar or something, in there so it all feels a little less dystopian.
There is a limited vinyl release available from the Duzz Down San website or you can get a name your price digital copy via bandcamp. This is definitely one for the Brainfeeder, future beats fans out there. Don’t miss out!
