Brooding dubstep for afronauts and the red eye(d) easyjet set. Lloop’s been working since the earl 90s Williamsburg rave scene on surreal and dubladen work – but i guess it was callled “illbient” back then- “60 HERTZ” is the new album- and it’s reminding me yet again how lacking the hegemonic dubstep creation myth is for explaining the genres development. Causality in cultural production is always nearly impossible to pinpoint- but this album certainly points to a more complicated relationship between stateside and UK developments in electronic music.
extra credit- 60 hertz is the frequency of AC power in the states… out of work with some spare time? take a photodiode, point it at a lamp and use it to control an oscillator- then u can listen to these sine waves humming all around us.
