Genres/Influences: Dark Ambient.
Background information: Nicolas Druoton strikes back with a new work from his 2methyl project. After experimenting with different musical genres, often related to IDM, and working with different labels, the new album heralds a new direction as it is self-released.
Contents: 2methyl have reinvented their sound and approach by exploring the broader areas of dark-ambient music. Noises like thunder, bass sound resonances, piano-like playing, industrial loops and bizarre sound atmospheres hover over this work.
+ + +: 2methyl reveals a completely different facet of its creation. It is an album carried by the vivid Dark-Ambient and which announces a new direction for the French artist. The tracks are extremely dark like creating the illusion of escaping from the depths of the earth. The writing excels in multiple sound details revealing an impressive sound well-being which must be the legacy of previous IDM productions. The piano playing adds an extra touch of desolation to this poignant composition.
– – –: I cannot say that there is an absolute highlight among the list of tracks.
Conclusion: 2methyl feels at ease with several musical genres and this Dark-Ambient production is already opening up new sonic horizons. I would like to encourage the artist to move forward in this direction.
Best Songs: “Isostatic pressing”, “Cold collision”, “Emerald smoke”.
