Cuticula – live
Vienna based producer Cuticula is a multiinstrumentalist and songwriter making beats and pieces largely inspired by hip hop, electronica and the modern mutations and offshoots from the forms from early 90s hip-hop. Key influences on production are artists like Rza, DJ Premier, Timbaland, Aphex Twin, Boards Of Canada, Autechre and more recently the hyperactive nature of trap music. Not sticking to anything formulaic Cuticula likes to create eerie moods and brings a kind of dark ambience to his pieces. Having played live supporting electronic artists such as D.R.U.G.S, Becoming Real, Fuckhead and various international techno Djs in clubs in Vienna like Few Nolder with his side project, the live electronica group Metaxis has brought him live skills and programming abilities. Delving into the world of soundtracks by creating the soundtrack for the short film „Monologue“ has brought him closer to an idea of where he wants to place his more reflective music but he is equally comfortable in the club environment making twisted bangers for heads to step to.
The lead track “Foglands” is an eerie drum work out with a cold ambience, utilising trap style snappy drums that falter and stall combined with an echoey baseline consisting of mystical monk chants, this roils and boils to make an unnerving instrumental piece.
The second track “Struck” is a more upbeat affair with rushy lead synths embedded in a greasy sawtooth bedding accompanied by heavy slow trap beats.
“Yellow” ups the ante again with drum rolls and electro bass combined in sometimes unorthodox ways with some old skool newsreel samples.
“Stumble”, the closer for the EP brings some melancholic chords in to introduce this soft ambient piece with paper thin phased out looping rusty drums. The track evolves with abrupt changes and energetic drums. The ecstatic piano at the end leaves a lasting impression and ends on a very positive feeling.
