GET THIS ALBUM: adamned.age - "Photosphaere"

Artist: Adamned.age
Album: Photosphaere
Label: XS Records
Year: 2008
Genre: IDM, Ambient
Website: xsrecordsptnetlabel.blogspot.com


I remember stumbling upon this artist quite randomly. A couple years back, I was on the myspace for some IDM act and saw a comment made by someone named adamned.age which contained photos of their album covers. I thought the album covers looked interesting, so I checked them out, though due to the nature of free digital releases I wasn't expecting anything mind-blowing. To my surprise, adamned.age turned out to be an goddamn amazing IDM project. This EP in particular really captivated me and has seen several hundred plays at my hands.

why you should get it:
This is quintessential ambient IDM; heavy on the dark, sombre atmospheres coupled with tranquil, complex clicky beats. It is repetitive, but in a very hypnotic way, kind of like early Autechre. Each track is diverse and memorable. Very well produced as well. Any fan of IDM, especially darker, atmospheric stuff needs to get this immediately. Adamned.age has several other free EPs which are all pretty much great and need to be heard, I will write about a couple more soon. For now cop this one.
