The mood of the fall of 2013 is now definitely set by two releases this month of the dark techno guys Hidden Rulers. With ‘Golden Dawn’ and ‘Bayesian Inference’ Hidden rulers brings techno Vatican Analog style: stuff that sounds like the batteries have eroded on it. Like the machines had a skin rash. Like the sequencer had a sick day. Weirded out percussive slabs of lo-fi techno noise that don’t go for the maximum in distortion, but for the maximum in atmosphere. Minimal in melody and minimal in meaning, this is music that’s honest. It only does what it’s meant for. You can dance to it, that’s your choice. No breaks, no big chorus, no deep touching melodies. Just dark and bleak machine sounds for like minded souls.
