IDMf062 Forms: IDM Vol. 1 OUT NOW!
It has arrived! The Netlabel Team is very, very proud to present to you Forms: IDM Vol. 1!
This is the 62nd release for the label and a return to the roots of what brought us all here to this forum in the first place: IDM. Here is what mastering engineer White Noise has to say about this release:
"We didn’t know what to expect when we asked IDMforums what IDM was to them in 2020. Since it’s inception, IDM has spanned a multitude of genres and styles. We’ve given genre prompts to the community over the last few years from house to dark techno and imposed limitations on the creative process by forcing them to use one synth or to collaborate with each other. We’ve done all that, but we haven’t asked them for their interpretation of IDM in a long time. The answers we got surprised us.
XVF gave us a new spin on his unique style of IDM with a more driven beat than ever from him. RFJ came at it with a cinematic twist on found sound and ambience. Dr Itchers made a lo-fi piece that breaks all the rules so flagrantly it has to be compelling. arcsec brought exactly what we would expect IDM to be in the midst of everything that surprised us (making this track surprising in its own way). all the morphic oceans brought another cinematic piece that takes the listener on an auditory journey. And Make Us Whole sent in a piece that hits like a bass track with the spaciousness of an ambient piece.
In all this, we found an EP that takes the listener on a sonic journey that we feel defines the sound of IDM today. Take a listen and see if you agree."
So settle in a give a listen to what IDM in 2020 is all about:
