about

Dim Sokette comes to us from an anonymous donor, much in the same way records like Edith Keeler's Harness have. These kinds of releases, where the authorship is left ambiguous, are fascinating because it forces the listener to focus only on what's there in the music. The tracks akrenaut produced bring to mind many fantastic aspects of other music from the past - elements of early Rephlex and Artificial Intelligence-era Warp, the early melodic phases of Ten and Tracer, the somber pads of Fieldtriqp and Christ., the skittering rhythmic programming of early AE, and more, all seem to be referenced here. Whether that's intended, or just a part of the DNA that makes Dim Sokette do what it does, is unknown, and ultimately irrelevant. It feels good - no, great - and it really makes the management here at RP proud to receive records of this caliber in the mailbox, just out of thin air. The only personal touches that seem to be obvious on Dim Sokette are bits of human dialogue that burble in and out of focus on certain tracks, and even a sampled cat meow and purr. akrenaut, whoever they are, are content to ride emotive waves through a very comfortable, homemade environment, and it gives Dim Sokette a nice sense of placement. For every eyebrow-raising chord change or curious bit of processing we hear, there are twice as many moments that feel carefully assembled and completely unique to someone's palette. A lovely release to coincide with Foamek's recent romp in the Autumn leaves, and a solid contribution to the growing RP catalog.
