Electronic/experimental artist WooliebuGGer, aka Eric Holub, releases a pair of singles, “Transmission 70” and “Drift.”
Talking about “Transmission 70,” WooliebuGGer says, “Boards of Canada being one of my huge influences. There was this project idea that came about inside my Boards of Canada Fan group I’m in. If it had not been for a chance encounter on one of my Facebook groups, I wouldn’t have even bothered to have made this track.”
Explaining “Drift,” he shares, “‘Drift’ is a classic take on the origins of Braindance/IDM.”
When he was 14 years old, WooliebuGGer began writing music, teaching himself as he explored new sounds. Defined by his innovative approach to music, WooliebuGGer generates songs with the essence of the ‘90s, yet still distinguished by limitless creativity, as well as “pure passion and love for the art form.”
“Transmission 70” opens on shifting, oscillating electronic tones trembling with futuristic textures, akin to a transmission from the far reaches of space. Dark, humming tones ride over luminous waves of coloration, infusing the tune with ghostly suffusions. Simultaneously visceral on one level, and ultramodern on another level, the song shimmers and pulsates with extraordinary fluxions.
“Drift” rolls out on a fluctuating, variable soundscape, followed by the entry of industrial sonic effects, like something from Metropolis. Percolating riffles, reminiscent of great machines thrumming and humming in a vast laboratory, imbue the harmonics with drenching pressure. At once starkly mechanical, there’s a throbbing allure to the amalgamation of fantastic assortments of sound and density.
With their low-slung sonic patterns and weird and wonderful fluidities, both tracks reflect layers of ozone smelling mists and produce magnetic auditory sensations.
Edgy and avant-garde, with “Transmission 70” and “Drift,” WooliebuGGer generates visible disturbances and post-modern ambiance.
