visuals by Sublyme Diagonal

Brussels-based Sublyme Diagonal has developed his personal take on techno and electronics as an unlikely equilibrium point between of his other careers respectively in mutant hiphop on one hand and untamed musique concrete on the other one. Obviously defending a perilous exercice in harmony of the opposite, he quietly professes his tightrope walking endeavours by advocating his complete rights to unpredictability.

Although his stage name already functions as a broad mandate for obliqueness, Sublyme Diagonal here further expands the enveloppe of his particular brand of electronica by altogether dispensing of rhythm or nearly eschewing repetition in favour of layers of drones and shards of tones. At times eerie or on the contrary massively mechanical,
the two sides of this new cassette glide and drift in abstract bliss. The title Geoid itself stands for equilibrium and friction between gravity and density in our ellipsoid biotop. Translated musically it means that the apparent stasis of the pieces is crisscrossed by contradictory forces
that stabilise them into a conflicting dynamic balance. True to the medium championed by Tanuki records, Sublyme Diagonal has crafted his tunes on an analog multitrack, taking advantage of typical tape hiss and hum, and positioning his sounds so that each side secretely mirrors the other one. For the listeners who love the more tilded sides of Jeff Mills or Dopplereffekt, a new excursion on the unexpected fringes of techno music.
