The Brvtalist is proud to present a new mix from S. English. The Texas-based producer programs a profound amalgam of industrial, techno and other tracks from the outer realms of electronics. This mix comes on the heels of the artist's LP, Eris, out now on L.I.E.S, which we examine more closely below.
After releasing a standout EP on the imprint last summer, we were thrilled to see the producer back on the label for a full length record. Eris is a superb work, showcasing a staggering array of genres, moods and textures that grip you from beginning to end. S. English comes from a vital Austin, TX community and his music reflects the incomparable diversity and allure of the American electronics scene. From the mood-setting, ambient opener "Sanctuary" we are shoved into the crushing, industrial banger, "Building Cathedrals". Next, English slows down the tempo for the captivating, yet melancholy "The Room Tonight", which flows through just like a poem. The final track on the first side is "Bilocation Drift", an instant hit that tumbles across a shadowy groove with lustful, haunting vocals.
Side B teleports us back to obscure, cerebral electronics with "Concrete Message" before "Invasion Threat" charges in with its militant, dystopian aggression. "I'll Take That One" tunnels its way through to the excellent closing track, "Eleventh Night" with seeps its way deep into your core on the way out. On constant repeat right now. Definitely pick this one up. Available on vinyl and digital formats. Visit L.I.E.S. Records.
