I/DEX – Seqsextend

I/Dex is my first exposure to the Ukrainian label Nexsound. I/Dex is the project of Vitaly Harmash who has been actively recording experimental electronic music since 1997. Harmash loves subtle moments, which he displays here to perfection. Over the course of 13 tracks (just over an hour of music) you’ll be treated to a mixture of light glitches, tape hiss, bass tones, static, minimal beats and atmospheric textures, which all collide into pleasing compositions. The track “CIQ” even adds in a nice minimal lounge influence that had me so relaxed I almost forgot about the headache I had most of the day. Other songs like “Rand” demonstrate a very child-like vibe, similar to the way I feel after listening to Boards Of Canada (albeit a more minimal techno version of BOC). I actually tossed “Seqsextend” in tonight while playing a round of Splinter Cell and the music fit the atmosphere of the game perfectly, which says a lot about the soundtrack quality of the release. Recommended chill out music for sure.
