Legendary retrosynth "veteran" Tommy '86 delivers his first darksynth offering in the form of "Transhumanism." Combining pulsating, distorted leads that spiral and expand over jagged bass lines that cut like a knife – "Transhumanism" is equal parts Dan Terminus hyperactivity with Perturbator's slow, crawling meditations upon rising motifs.
The album's dystopian storyline takes place deep in the future, in the town of Citymulation. We track the exploits of the L.V.T.H.N. Project as its progressive A.I. attempts to mimic the human brain.
With extra production assistance by Dynatron and special guest appearances by labelmates Perturbator and Dan Terminus, "Transhumanism" conjures a deep, cinematic experience that's headed towards becoming the surprise synth sleeper hit of the year.
