Classic electro resurrected from DAT.
The late Stinson's chaotic, discordant electro as Transllusion was utterly hypnotic and A Moment Of Insanity is no different. "Moment 1" shows Stinson's skill for tracks that subtly build with no climatic peak. A moody synth line meets high frequency squelches and ticking 808 hi-hats for the loop that anchors the tune. "Moment 3" and "Moment 4" are noisier, while the broken, stormy rhythm of "Moment 3" is paired with eerie synths and plinking piano. The creepy whirr of "Moment 2" could have been recorded yesterday, towing the line between electro and minimal that labels like Cabaret Recordings beautifully explore. As Clone says, "James Stinson can be seen as one of the last few techno musicians from his generation that lived up to the high expectations of moving forward." These newly found recordings reaffirm that.
