Barker Explores the Sonic Possibilities of the Kick Drum for Smalltown Supersound
Written by rhythm86 on July 14, 2023
Following the release of 2021ís BARKER002 EP on Ostgut Ton, Unfixed emerged from a session in bass drum design. Tracks were started and then left unfinished, only to be approached again and again over lengthy intervals. Stylistically, the result is a mix of “raw, stuttering, psychedelic growl, kosmische techno, and infinite iterations of a single groove,” we’re told.
The result, once again, is “a sound and musical framework all of his own.”
