Carpe Sonum
(seizeXXXVIII: 708527180457/SEIZEXXXVIII-3)
Release date: 05/25/2018
Genre: Electronic




What remains integral to the very heart of electronic music is the nature of its diversity, its ability to be mutable, fluid, malleable; in many ways, as a complete ‘genre’ wholly tethered to its current and/or vintage technology, electronic music by design is the most progressive of musical forms. And these characteristics are often what makes such sounds and textures so compelling, even breathtaking, in their scope. The duo of Lee Anthony Norris and Frank Rumpelt, recording as 2xritam, embrace this approach unreservedly. Norris is one of electronica’s long-established journeymen, having made his mark back in the far-flung 90s with both his Metamatics projects and the vital signs he posted across his highly respected Neo Ouija imprint; he continues to be hyperactive in the extreme, recording under numerous aliases for his own txt label and many others. Colleague Rumpelt has kept a lower profile but has maintained a steady presence since the late 90s cloaked under his own collection of disguises, operating effectively along a minimal techno grid of scattered 12’s and digital-only editions. Together as 2xritam, the duo revel in a marriage made in bleep heaven: thorny glades of low-end pulses compete against soaring moogified atmospheres amid an often intense conflagration of systemic pattern logistics and windswept drones. Their project surely echoes the finer mirror moves of the late Pete Namlook and his own variegated collaborative works, and would have effortlessly carried the Fax label’s proud mantle ever forward. Subsequently proffered here from Carpe Sonum, we’re pleased to present Norris and Rumpelt's newly-minted, ear-intoxicating alchemy of futureshock electronic psychedelia.
