[PCMS036] The North Sea Intimate

by Maff Stenning



Crackle and distortion like an old record sets the context for Maff Stenning's The North Sea Intimate. Allowing a couple minutes to introduce the dominant harmonies, it will take six minutes to reach the apex and four minutes to build back down. Maff's style is nostalgic of something precursory of electronic music.
Using a mixture of analog synthesizers and sampling with mainly melodic layers to keep rhythm, the two works feel like an archive of folk music presented as ambient. The second piece follows with similar sound design but is more muted and buried in reverb. Percussive rumbles swell and pop like unraveled low-end frequencies. This is the second release on Pinecone Moonshine in seven years to depart from Drum and Bass, 170bpm music.

Pinecone Moonshine Portland, Oregon

Run by Nic TVG, Pinecone Moonshine is a collection of Drumfunk (drum and bass) and other abstract and ambient music.

See the neocities link below for the demo policy.

Majority of the tracks are melancholy collages of noise, heavily processed samples, and atmospherics driven by broken break beats and heavy sub. Free jazz, early electronics, blues, and funk are noticeable influences.
