Andreas Gerth and Florian Zimmer return under their Driftmachine moniker with a new album for Umor Rex, the under-rated Mexico City imprint that likes to travel every corner of the globe in search of new and interesting electronic talent. More specifically, the majority of their artists, including Driftmachine, have a penchant for the genreless, and this is heard loudly on Colliding Contours. Tagging this album as drone would be doing it no justice, the sonic patterns within tunes like "Sans Soleil", or "Gaukelwerk" are too rich in texture and motion, with the latter being particularly dubby. Others like "Observant Sirens" stray even further away form any notion of ambient, and deliver a hot and murky pool of analogue percussion backed by a spectral collection of sounds and noise. TIP!
