Abstract Mutation " Expert Loner"
Melbourne producer Abstract Mutation may reside on the other side of the world, but the experimental techno artist has clearly set up camp in the ephemeral, low-tech world that such American personalities as James Ferraro and Oneohtrix Point Never occupy. In his track "Expert Loner," taken from the upcoming Fake Keygen release (out on August 27 via 1080p), reversed and blurred soundscapes are paired to militaristic hi-hats and borrowed '90s bass loops in an even-keeled, unassuming track. Like Ferraro's Far Side Virtual, which made use of sounds borrowed from Muzak and forgotten consumer culture, "Expert Loner" is rife with archaic timbres which Abstract Mutation describes as "goofball dance signifiers."
