Netlabel Digital Diamonds has stayed one of the more active netlabels. As such, it comes up more and more often when fishing for recent releases in the younger parts of the Internet Archive’s audio section. This release is a particularly brilliant gem of cerebral dance music. Doing well both as fancy coding backdrop as well as late night club furniture, its polished soundscapes hide lots of work that must have gone into their effort betraying shiny finish.
HOWW likes to slowly ramp up to (mild) drops, managing to be both ambient and dance at the same time, a feat not many artists manage to pull off this cleanly.
Deceptively simple formula (1 loop), marvellous execution: one hummable theme is repeated (almost) unchanged throughout, but everything else around morphs, fades, transforms
