Glasgow's Calum MacRae records experimental club music under the name Lanark Artefax.


The Glasz EP is a trippy, time-warping suite feeding complex rhythmic structures and bent club blueprints thru meticulous FX contouring, re-shaping conventional shapes to create something almost gaseous in form. It's a sound rendered most explicitly in the title track and the lush, polymetric gyroscopics of All That Is Solid Melts Into Air, or with more elusive, prism-pushing aspects of cone-buckling subs and interlaced choral frameworks in Remainder I that sound like ‘ardcore filtered to plasmic, quantum jelly.


Glasz opens the other side with a curdled take on trap, oozing queasy stripes of melody and rave stabs on a brittle, percolated rimshot/snare, before Phasze (s_h_i_f_t) diffuses grime in an aether fantasy of sci-fi romantic pads and scything, elastic drums, and Virtual Bodies glitches a sort of shatterproof, neon-coloured chamber music.
