DESCRIPTION

Iceland’s Volruptus returns to Bjarki’s bbbbbb with five esoteric cuts titled ‘Alien Agenda’.

Releasing on bbbbbb at the end of last year, Volruptus has emerged swiftly on the European party scene, with the Icelandic artist popping up on line-ups all over the continent. Following releases by Norway’s EOD and fellow Icelandic talent, Lord Pusswhip, ‘Alien Agenda’ is bbbbbb’s third record of the year - continuing Bjarki’s progressive tastes for innovative electronic Scandinavian artists.

First up, ‘svínastía 3000’ deploys a synthetic, fast-pitched techno revolver fused with space- induced, twisted modulations. A scratch tool titled ‘Itchy and Scratchy Show’ follows before launching into ‘Súrmatur’ - a celestial 303 synth line layered over scattered electro drums, together providing a magical transcendental experience.

‘Alien Agenda’ is suitably an eccentric, IDM tinged number – with shades of acid and powerful bass shrills becoming the focus here. Last up, ‘Misanthropgy (Dark Stöff)’ provides an energetic rolling percussive loop, intensifying naturally through cryptic, high-pitched melodies.
