At the beginning of next month, Midgar Records will launch its new sub-label, Midgar Sands, a series that will focus on heavier, more experimental sounds—think grainy textures, glitches, and mind-bending sound design—with Ground Tactics' Immaterial Breath EP.
Ground Tactics is the alias of Colin Tobelem, a French-American artist who crafts deeply woven analog outings that look to bridge gaps between sonic fields, sitting somewhere in the nether regions between IDM, techno, industrial, and ambient. His new EP, Immaterial Breath, follows his meditative Cinnabar Field EP with four confounding cuts that defy categorization—a perfect fit for the new experimental arm of Midgar. Like his previous outings, each element on Immaterial Breath is handcrafted from Tobelem's machines, showing an innate mastery of sound design.
In support of the release, Midgar has offered up deep and trippy EP cut "Shattering Illusions" as today's XLR8R download, available via WeTransfer below.
