Just released on L.I.E.S, Brooklyn's own Pvre Matrix. This is the artist's first release on the always impressive NY-based label and "Burning Sulfur" immediately caught our attention with its mutated outsider techno taken into hyperdrive. The track maintains a sense of restlessness, then plunges into a frenetic state of precise, sculpted sounds— conjuring up the dizzying upheaval one feels during a state of panic.
Influenced by the likes of Orphx and Maurizio Bianchi, Pvre Matrix records using analog synths, drum machines, and electronics. Earlier this year he released a tape through the noise and techno collective “Primitive Languages,” who previously ran a store located under the JMZ train tracks. You can hear more from Pvre Matrix via Soundcloud.
