Hainback grows some ripe and juicy waveforms, ready for the picking.
Most synth nerds will know Hainbach from the internets. He makes consistently interesting videos on youtube involving esoteric, hard-to-find and rare electronic devices and instruments. Unlike many synth ‘youtubers’, he actually makes decent tracks as well!
‘Schwebungssummer’ is a 6 track EP based on primitive, revolving techno-esque pulses and some quite dark, discordant pads underpinning them. Quite unlike his previous releases and sounding much more musically distinct. The raw synths are sequenced (or triggered?!) in a organic and pulsating way, that reminds me of Luke Abbott’s first LP ‘Holkham Drones’. Based on the album art, at least some of the sounds are likely to be generated from some of his obscure audio test equipment. The heavy synth theme continues throughout, with only some piano(?) motifs rising out from the squelch in the final ‘It Will Stay Dark’.
I’ve ordered the vinyl and I’m holding off listening to the digital too much, so I can enjoy this in all it’s properly mastered glory.
