Jamie Roberts is no stranger to the more experimental tenets of the techno genre, and much of the British artist’s output of late has hinted at more leftfield leanings. A recent return to Will Bankhead’s Trilogy Tapes imprint saw a brace of meditative, post-Detroit workouts—employing the same heady, hardware aesthetic as much of his work on Ternesc, though at a drastically reduced tempo.
It’s this same willingness to break down perceptions regarding his own music that marks Walk Type—Roberts’ debut on the Avian label—as a notable chapter in the artist’s discography.
In terms of aesthetic finish, AVN027 might be Roberts’ most comprehensive and well articulated ode to the culture of machine music—but it’s also his most organic offering. Corroded drones provide the basis for much of the material, pitching & bending at will, shifting and warping in and amongst furtive drum work.
