Infrastructure is proud to introduce the debut record from Campbell Irvine, the 23 year-old outsider talent who hails from Australia and has recently re-located to Berlin. Part industrial mantra, part musique concrète, this immersive and captivating debut continues Infrastructure‘s re-launch, bringing genuine new talent to the table.
The classically trained violinist, who until recently had little background or experience in electronic music, has put together a deeply ritualistic study in textural, layered compositions inspired by middle-eastern traditions and rhythms. With a nod to the influential work of artists like Muslimgauze, Irvine has constructed a complex world of electro-acoustic elements, carefully processed and arranged field recordings, acoustic percussion and arabic sound-bytes. Underpinning each tense, hypnotic arrangement are subtle sub-sonic elements that have their roots in dub or dub techno, yet the overall impressive sound aesthetic is far removed from both.
‘Removal Of The Six Armed Goddess‘ arrives as a welcome beacon for the techno community, proving that innovation in both composition and production is still attainable
