JELLE BUMA  /  SWEACH  /  M=MAXIMAL

MAX0029 EP DL  / syncron-arts

Killer volley of autobahn-inspired drums and synth workouts by minimalist Dutch drummer, Jelle Buma. He takes the hair off it with a raging entrance called ‘Sweach’ that sounds like the bastard brainchild of Powell and The Skull Defekts, whereas ‘Suderein’ finds him stretching out with precisely intricate time signatures in mathy, jazzy fashion, and the clattering percussions of ‘Haudmare’ are engulfed by powerful synths and drum machine punctuation like some sorta semi-organic Autechre. Don’t sleep on this one! BOOMKAT – SEPT 2015

jelle buma is a solo drummer who hates drum solos. his all-time favorite colleague is the alesis drum machine gracing the earlier albums of godflesh (industrial ambient metal pioneers in the 1990s). nothing could better llustrate his preference for minimalistic, that last for minutes without irritation. buma aims to integrate these machine-inspired rhythms into his “drum’n’soundscape” compositions. germanic austerity, alienation and a disordering type of swing strive for hegemony … his new album ‘sweach’ features arctic bossanovas, percussive kitchenware, glitch ambient, industrial dubstep frenzy, fakejazz samplism-noir, …, all aiming at pulling the listener (and himself) into a state of cathartic trance.
