New Music: Ben Kaczor — “Vineta”

On December 15 Merci Jitter will release their Movements Vol. II compilation, a consortium of DJs, producers, and artists, all abridged under the banner of international communication and camaraderie. The compilation brings together 13 artists on 12 tracks, blurring the worlds of electronic subgenres into global textures.

Today, we’re treated to the collaboration’s opening track, from Basel, Switzerland-based producer Ben Kaczor. Bulbs of synth open slowly on the horizon in technicolor, while a sonar pulse grids the track. It’s a drifting, hypnotic noise drone that slaps you in the face without waking you up. With synths that hint at The X-Files theme thrown over distorted strings, the song is a stunning vignette from front to end. The Hypnotic Groove label premiered the composition on their Soundcloud, and you can listen to it here:
