dgoHn: s/t EP

dgoHn released an album on Rephlex a decade ago, but I haven’t kept up with his career since then. His music is just as breathtaking now as it was then, building intense narratives out of deftly manipulated breakbeats and traces of menacholy feelings. He has a knack for effortlessly flowing between live-sounding drums and sharper, digitally shredded ones, making this some sort of cyborg drumfunk. “Dolorous Dick’ead” is the bullit on this EP, it just sets up and tears right through before you’re ready. “Lost and Found” is subtler but slowly pulverizes as well. All four tracks are outstanding though.
