Approved: House Of Tapes

House Of Tapes

Club promoter, owner of the Sleep Jam record label and, most relevantly right now, record producer House Of Tapes makes what he calls “paranoia electronica”. And he makes it at an astonishing rate, with new tracks frequently appearing on his SoundCloud profile. With his latest album, ‘Nu Tears’, just a month old, new tracks are already pushing it down the page.

Prolific he may be, but it’s not at the expense of quality. Latest track, ‘Dark Lands’, sets a scene of cinematic proportions in under three minutes, weaving ominous synths around bleak beats. Meanwhile the more upbeat, almost chirpy – and also recently added – ‘Twinkle Link’ is filtered through distortion and runs at a tense tempo.

So there’s a definite darkness that runs throughout, although both tracks offer some relief after the violent noise of ‘Nu Tears’.

Listen to ‘Dark Lands’ here:
