Jannick Schou: "Fabrik"

Jannick Schou:

Danish dronemaker Jannick Schou is well-regarded for his ambient work, so it’s intriguing to hear him explore another side of the hypnotic with the slowed-down funeral techno of “Fabrik.” Built around motorik drum programming and meticulously backmasked samples, Schou washes his synths out with filters that wouldn’t sound out of place in the Basic Channel back catalogue, flanked by desiccated handclaps and metallic triplet scuffs. A gothic synth and a forlorn chanter carry the melody, getting chopped up and delayed with slow motion precision. What follows are sibilant drones before leftover sounds of industry draw the party to a close.

Fabrik is out May 12 on Experimedia.
