The Technology EP is the third release from LDLDN (NTS Radio, Spacebass) on his Natural Frequency Records imprint, following on from the success of ‘Make Time’ in Summer 2021.This abstract, bass-heavy 4-tracker riffs on the idea that modern technology enhances, dominates and changes our lives. Technology shapes us as much as we shape it.
The EP opens with the title track “Machine Code”, an 808-driven house jam wrapped in LDLDN’s typically layered, lush synth chords. Front foot and futuristic.
“Technology” takes a classic deep house workout and heightens it with an elastic bassline and crystalline piano riffs. A stuttering, pitched down vocal reminds the listener that electronic music has no boundaries.
‘Haptic Feedback’ drops the pace but increases the intensity, with a growling, rolling bass riff punctuated by heavy, doubled up kick drums. 90s-style key stabs push and pull throughout a track that has a weird energy of its own.
The EP closes out with ‘Digital Love’, an elevated love letter to technology. Pure movement, driven by a jacked up bassline and soaring keyboards that speak to digital desires.
The ‘Technology EP‘ will be released on 8th July 2022 via Bandcamp and streaming platforms.
