Nada is pleased to present Kindohm - Mesabi Range. Our 22nd release is a collaboration with fellow Minnesotan Mike Hodnick aka Kindohm, where algorithmic funk meets crisp ice cold synthesis and elastic timings.
Mesabi Range is perhaps Hodnick’s most hard-hitting release to date with the disorienting hyper-abstract geometries of IDM and footwork being obvious departure points. A common motif are the lush textures and club-over-the-head rhythm of tracks like opener “a-code.” Elsewhere, the mutated jungle of “d-code” and “b-code” exhibit corkscrew-like percussion patterns contrasting with the melodic landscapes of “dubious triangle.”
All music was composed and produced with the TidalCycles coding environment using samples and live synthesis over MIDI. The samples and code files are included in this release for you to explore and use.
USB Card. Includes album tracks, live recordings, and all samples and code files used to create the album.
Digital download via Bandcamp (album only).
