Nico Niquo – EpitaphPosted: February 19, 2015
Daaaaaamn, how do we name this new thing?! R-plus-sevenwave? Darkwebcore? Damn, I dunno. But this Orange Milk tape by the Melbourne based web-gazer Nico Callaghan a.k.a. Nico Niquo is surely inspired by the hyperreal sound. It’s almost like everyone’s trying to one-up each other in creating hyper-pristine computer-generated sceneries devoid of a single speck of dust, a single aberration. Shiny surfaces reflecting the imagined surroundings located high above, among the clouds, up in the sky. And sometimes it gets a little dancey, like the dystopian beats of Jam City at their most deconstructionist, but without losing its antiseptic, ultra hi-fi quality. Is this the future yet?
