Effervescent Lifeforms

by Micr.Pluto

Magnetism 03:57


There are few local musicians who've invested as much resources and energy into raising a torch for the South African experimental beat scene as Micr.Pluto has. Whether through his role as a singularly potent voice in this scene or as the co-founder of the label Subterranean Wavelength, he has always passionately striven to spread the gospel about the less explored textures of electronica that our country has to offer.

This new offering from Micr.Pluto sees the Johannesburg based producer once again take his production to greater ambitions.
Never one to duck under experimentation and dimensional layers, the sonic exploration sees the artist interrogate and ignite evocative crashes, melodies, and cymbals. Metamorphosis defies stasis in this journey, as time blends from one infinitesimal moment to the next; we are taken into infinite loops, shakes, and glitches that echo in rhythm to the rumblings of these most interesting times.

The return of long-time collaborator and label partner Tribal Rebel Ludi is a testament to bridges built and burnt in a unity.
The seamless yet evident marriage of digital and live elements is solidified by the appearances of guitarist and music composer Chimurenga, and pianist Emamkay, who’s inclusion on the project add new sonic dimensions and subtle yet prominent embellishments into the layered soundscapes.

In a time where influence is mistaken for theft and theft mistaken for innovation, we harken to unbridled artistic originality that pays homage to the journey and paths walked and still being traveled.
