Voix Métalliques builds on previous danceand melodic techno releases but goesmuch darker with ‘Not Now’ not soundingout of place in Berlin’s Berghain.
VoixMétalliques wraps weird voices throughout the tracks, anchoring the EP name and track sound design consistency.
The ‘Four Eyes’ opener is a high energy track with ‘Secrets’ and ‘Save Me’ befitting of a dark sex dungeon. Or so some people say… Although ‘Deep Sleep’ is a much lighter, happier track.
Voix Métalliquesis a hard-edged EP with biting drums and slick, oozing basslines with a definite nod to Gesaffelstein and Stephan Bodzin and a stark contrast to Paul’s recent modular ambient releases.
Voix Métalliques demonstrates Paul’s ability to merge beautifully crafted electronica through different genres and he’s equally at home creating cinematic soundscape epics or deep, dark hedonist melodic techno with glitching percussion and thumping kicks.
Recorded at his home studio in Liverpool, Paul uses a combination of digital and analogue synths and effects from vintage SH-101’s to modern eurorack and ARP 2600reincarnations.
He composes, mixes and produces alone as the megalomaniacal dictator of his own studio.
