Psychonavigation presents the new album from one of Ireland's unsung electronic heroes.
Colin N Cloughley aka Anodyne, known for his mind shredding live shows, returns after a 14 year hiatus to present his latest opus in the form of 'Corrosion'.
Thinking of himself as more of a programmer than a musician, anodyne utilizes his own, home built plug-ins and circuit bent instruments to great effect throughout the album's twelve tracks.
From the album's minimalistic opener, 'When The Sky Fell Down' swiftly followed by the epic strings and breakbeats of 'Close Your Eyes' the artist leads the listener into experiments in dark elektro, acid and ambient before returning to the stunning Wasteland, with its driving electronic pulse surrounded by warm, somber strings, it evokes memories of the glory days of electronic innovation. 'Corrosion' effortlessly blends elements of old skool rave, elektro and breakbeat into a darkly beautiful, electronic CD. Chemical Sunset, which was inspired by a drive through Dublin as sunlight faded, is a beautiful example of the artist's vision of Techno. 'Walk Into Darkness', a dark ambient journey ruptured with clinical, austere beats leads into the albums closing track, the end of the night anthem, 'Alchemy'. Taking influence from classic electronic albums by Autechre, Black Dog and U-Ziq, 'Corrosion' was made for those who dream of the future.
