A fresh ambient sound from the Drexciya universe.
If you flit through the Daughter Produkt Bandcamp, you'll find tracks at various speeds—though most are slower—with the familiar Donald touches (icy chords, sputtering arpeggios). "Binary State Zero," however, adds strings to the mix. It's striking to hear something so natural and warm in this music. Ambient and unsettling, "Binary State Zero" isn't quite a banger, but it adds a new kind of texture. From its revolving-door personnel approach to the unusual sounds on "Binary State Zero," Daughter Produkt has the potential to be the most exciting thing that Donald has done in years. As the Drexciya reissue machine thunders on, it's heartening to hear him still forging forward with new ideas. Keep your eyes on that Bandcamp page.
