#26 - Performance Entrancer

by The Owl

This song was originally called 'The Spider's Legs Entangle With The Seahorse'. I have no clue why...
This one was originally called 'The Swirling Birds Fighting To The Birth'. Not anymore. There's some sexy sub-bass in this one if you get involved enough.
This one was originally called 'A Haven, A Heaven, A Heathen'. A nice bit of alliteration and playing with words, and I was tempted to rename it 'Ahahah'.. but, I thought I would go srs bsnss instead!


These 3 songs were originally on the 'All Sound Is Synthetic' album I made in 2004, under the name Incandescence.

They've been pulled to pieces, resampled and restructured into what I consider 'bigger beasts', between October 28th and November 16th 2020.

Meant as a continuation of 'Entranced Performer' and an acknowledging head nod to the early 90s rave scene, (hence the XL Recordings and R&S Records inspired artwork for these two records).

The highlights of that scene, for me, was all the Belgian, Dutch and German hardcore / rave stuff, The Hypnotist, N-Joi, The Prodigy (Experience), and then going off into the different roads of Orbital, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Venetian Snares etc for the 'weird and noisy' influences.

In recent years, one of the best creators of this sort of thing is Filmmaker. I love the warped edge he has on everything, but he certainly knows how to lay down some banging tunes and rhythms!

I hope you will stick your headphones in and listen close.
The first one is definitely danceable, the second track is more of a fun cute weird song to warm you up with the sub-bass, and the third one, the deeper you listen, the more (I hope) you will get the same shivers up your spine as me when it reaches its climax.

Thank you for listening.
