Not to be mixed up with the 1980s italo-disco crew, 'bassist' Aleph returns ot the Renraku imprint with the second instalment of his self-titled series. Much like the previous edition, there are low frequencies for all here, mashing up dubstep, trap and anything remotely attached to the hardcore continuum. Now that we're in 2018, however, it's much more difficult to unpack these sounds as belonging to specific genres, and this is emphasized further by his own creativity in the studio. For instance, tunes like "Goliath" or "Monolith" enter a new territory of bass music, shifting conventional notions of tempo, arrangement and aesthetic to fit in line with today's industrial trend. "Scintillations" is our favourite cut on here, mainly because it reminds us of AFX's early experiments. Look out for this guy in the coming months...
