about

London-based Andrew Nixon composes analogue synth dreamscapes from lunar drones, skeletal melodies and technicolour arps that stretch to infinity. There is an otherworldly dreaminess to the six tracks contained on this release. Light and shade are equally represented: from the darkened drones of 'LV-246', to the Klaus Schulze planetarium vibes of 'Chrome', to the stalking menace of 'The Car', which sounds something like an outtake from 'Escape From New York'.


THE QUIETUS
"Nostalgic Londoner, Andrew Nixon, spends his time flitting between washed out gnarled drones and pulsating John Carpenter arpeggiations. The retro synth-vibe is rarely this well done, and the Nixon's interests clearly range wider than your average retrofuturist. The simmering intro to 'LV-246' spends four solid minutes hovering in ice cold atonal stasis before familiar arpeggiations and synth washes straight from the Vangelis cook book emerge. 'Chrome' tickles the space-age Schulze and Jarre vibe, while 'Habitual Arp Worship' takes those John Carpenter action themes to their logical conclusion, pummelling the speaker for a full seven minutes. Side two sees Nixon produce more of the same simmering horror and action movie soundtracks from outer space, circa 1978. Despite largely mimicking his idols, it's an excellent set of tunes from Nixon, impeccably put together, and with enough originality to make it essential listening for fans of Carpenter, Vangelis, Shulze, et al."
