Artist(s) of the Day: Secede & Kettel
But he's come back, and I don't know how I feel about that. Weird, perhaps... I'd started to move on and he's caught me in a transition. What he produces is certainly interesting: a collaborative LP with label friend and equally as amazing electronic producer Kettel (who remains somewhat of an undiscovered gem). The release sets sail with a lot of quirky, unusual motifs like traditional Asian instruments and musical interpretations of rain forests all tied up with a very slight cloth of ambiance. It's captivating in whatever way you look at it, though initially the surprising ideas can seem a tad intimidating. Influences from the tail-end of IDM culture are evident, as our comparisons to the best of both artists' discographies, so it's safe to stick with words such as "varied" and "eclectic" when describing the album.
It's weird sure, but I can already say that during the time I've spent writing this article I'm starting to fall in love all over again...
