Andreas Davids - Digitale Asche [Inner Demons Records 087]

Coming in via mail only recently as a hand-numbered, limited to 42 copies 3" CD-r edition is "Digitale Asche", the latest musical outing created by Xotox mastermind Andreas Davids who's employing his irl name for this one. Released on the American, Tampa / Florida-based underground label Inner Demons Records the two tracks - subsequently named "Part 01" and "Part 02" - see Mr. Davids on a quite intense, mind-drilling tip, combining a fluttering, ever modulating midrange drone with stripped down, clean and futuristic Electronica structures with a slightly late 90s / early 2000s-leaning touch in combination with massive - and massively unsettling - low end rumblings as well as grinding, ever shifting sonic emulations of what plate tectonics must sound like if they were to be transferred into an audible spectrum whilst "Part 02" explores more of an icey, fragmented and once again well futuristic realm, best to be described as the remnants of a highly developed civiliziation rediscovered tens of thousands of years after a cataclysmic extinction event, sitting amidst the methane swamps of a frozen exoplanet far far away in another galaxy. Dark, Real dark.
