Hexose LP - Sunken Foal
Following the recent critical success of his 101 Beats Per Minute collective project, Le Doux Nord LPs and Ribbon Works EPs, Ireland’s most prolific electronic composer and one of an exclusive coterie of producers who truly understands the occult language of the synthesiser, Dunk Murphy returns this spring with the release of his 7th album as Sunken Foal.
Reflecting a lifelong infatuation with confectionery and a passion for synthesisers, Murphy’s latest suite, ‘Hexose’, features layers of thick harmony, flickering nano-sound design and extensive use of self generating melodies to conjure up a rich bio-mechanical soundscape. The end product is reminiscent of contemporaries like Lee Gamble and William Fields and the softer aspects of the 90’s WARP sound, blended with the work of visionary synth artists such as Laurie Spiegel, Suzanne Doucet, Enno Velthuys, and Vangelis.
Whether you enjoy the cloying sweetness of the Caramac, the saccharine pleasures of the Instant Whip or the seductive charms of the Dark Bounty, you’ll find something in this mellifluous selection box to satisfy your audial cravings.
