From the album’s minimalistic opener, When The Sky Fell Down swiftly followed by the epic strings and breakbeats of Close Your Eyes the artist leads the listener into experiments in dark elektro, acid and ambient before returning to the stunning Wasteland, with its driving electronic pulse surrounded by warm, somber strings, it evokes memories of the glory days of electronic innovation. ‘corrosion’ effortlessly blends elements of old skool rave, elektro and breakbeat into a darkly beautiful, electronic LP.
Chemical Sunset, which was inspired by a drive through Dublin as sunlight faded, is a beautiful example of the artist’s vision of Techno. Walk Into Darkness, a dark ambient journey ruptured with clinical, austere beats leads into the albums closing track, the end of the night anthem, ‘Alchemy’. Taking influence from classic electronic albums by Autechre, Black Dog and U-Ziq, corrosion was made for those who dream of the future.
