2016 was an exceptional year for Umwelt; he released the excellent, brooding album, Days of Dissent, and put out a series of killer EPs. Density for French label Rave or Ride, consolidates his sound. It starts with the bleak sound scapes of "Density 1", before moving into the low-slung, muddy grind of "Density 2", which sounds like T.Raumschmiere jamming with Phuture. Of course, Umwelt's electro roots are never too far away, and they lumber into view on the acid-caked, rave excess of "Density 3". The fourth "Density" is the final instalment and is a wonderfully apocalyptic affair, its distorted, frazzled kicks and nocturnal synths conspiring to create the ultimate bad trip soundtrack.
