Glassbox: Where Is Everybody? 12″

The new single from Toronto’s Ian Patterson captures that overwhelming feeling of being lost from everyone you hold dear, caught up in life’s rush and suddenly realizing you’re all alone. “Where Is Everybody?” is a pounding track that draws from a drum’n’bass palette, with some steely breakbeats attached to its relentless kick drums, and synths that are both ecstatic and frightful, like the best darkside. Plus there’s timestretched vocals that ask for a sign of life but end up calling into the void. “Interdimensional Cetecea” has slightly trancey jittery synths, but the beats are fast and broken, and after a short pause the breaks get absolutely ballistic. This is music that thrives at the edge of panic, but remains too strong to give in and destruct.
