Eat The World (Eat The Fog Mix)

from Veil — System Drills Volume 1 by Veil

  • Veil — System Drills Volume 1
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Patterned Air's first slab of vinyl! A 12" single by Veil originally released in 2008 on Test Conditions, comprising two tracks of furthest-reaches, writhing, broken, echoing bass music for a generation who used to haunt the outdoors of an evening (the included digital download comprises four tracks). Re-packaged in a heavyweight poly sleeve with a handmade leather tie and hand-stamped textured card insert. The download version features two extra tracks not included in the original release and unheard before now (free with purchases of the 12").

    This is the sound of vaporous dubstep, drums and percussion and wiry analogue synths clattering and seething in the fog of a midnight playground.

    Awesome acid artwork by Daniel Andersson-Boe.

    "Complex Experimentation. Another outsider exploring new avenues for dubstep away from the standard dancefloor wobbler, Veil is normally part of electronic indie experimenters Magnétophone — but on his solo debut winds round the dubstep template with buzzing synth melody lines and complex structures. ‘Park Mist’, with militant drums and haunting vocal snatches, is particularly powerful, and adventurous. DJs should check this."

    Joe Muggs, The Wire 296 Oct 2008
    "There’s nothing like a complete outsider to turn the conventions of a genre inside out, and Matthew J Saunders of 4AD’s motorik shoegaze pop explorers Magnétophone has done just that with his incursions into dubstep as Veil. Marshalling analogue synths and reverbs, Saunders brings whimsical Radiophonic melodies (on ‘Eat The World’) and an ever so slightly ramshackle, played-live sensibility, as if (Hot Chip were jamming with Jaki Liebezeit (on ‘Park Mist’) into play. Thankfully, though, there’s none of the indie tweeness that could come with these approaches. Instead, Saunders has taken on board dubstep’s sound system sense of physical scale, and in so doing made his components strange, threatening and fantastical — and, by forgetting DJ-friendly orthodoxy and adding musicianly touches, opening up rich new avenues of exploration of chord patterns and long form melodic routes through dubstep’s architecture."
