“Atavism is the fourth album from snd. It reveals, explores and reinterprets the fundamentals of its origins interpreted in a new time and a new context: simultaneously iteration, re-interpretation and a process of invention; both an allusion to the origins of a type and the genesis of something new. The geometric forms and rhythmic assuredness of first-wave techno combine with the linear clarity of digital minimalism to expose themes whose rhythmic and harmonic immediacy and ostensive sparsity belie the complexity of their form. In a cycle of exposition and development materials are slowly drawn through processes of compression and expansion, inversion and reversal, atomization and consolidation, to return shaped into new orders – a process of sonic origami. Over 16 untitled pieces, themes are developed slowly to the point of obliteration only to be re - layered and rediscovered in new surroundings.” raster-noton has been following the creativity of the boys behind snd for years. the special radicality of their work gains our full respect. the early release “blir. edits” which was part of raster-series documents this fundamental interest. we are proud to continue our collaboration by publishing a “real” snd-album today.
