Tommy Four Seven – Arx [Stroboscopic Artefacts]
Tommy Four Seven – Enki [Stroboscopic Artefacts]
Tommy Four Seven is straight from the Old School. Not in the classical sense of the term (at least not in the Classic Techno sense of the term), but underneath the Rhys Meyers-good-looks is a lean, mean warrior from the 17th century. BC, that is.
There is a certain fervour about his work. A pious resolve, the stuff of cults (the good ones, anyway). His method is patient, incisive. ‘Arx’ rivals ‘Lattice‘ in its build, the unrelenting synth and layers of field recordings placing you on the verge of an enticing magnetic field—as that deep sea-drilling kick drops down like a command from the Gods. Heavy.
