Against The Backdrop

If you want some slow motion machine music, acid tinged, widescreen emotive techno on a Tuesday morning in early April- and why wouldn't you?- then you need look no further. Against The Backdrop is the closing track on a five track EP, The Long Tail by Inigo Kennedy, out at the end of last month and ticks all the boxes. The chugging rhythms and lovely lysergic acidic squiggle are almost enough on their own but when the deep synth string chords hit, the track provokes some serious moments. It would sound equally good pushed through a big sound system in a cavernous space, played on crappy car stereo speakers or through headphones while walking. 

Against The Backdrop and rest of The Long Tail can be bought at Bandcamp. It can also be found towards the end of the first hour of Daniel Avery's Morning After mix, recorded at Ramona in Manchester a couple of Sundays ago for a BBC Radio 6 weekend festival. You can listen to it here.

It's been a long day, I'm sipping on a rye whiskey and both it and this tune is going down very well indeed.

Great shout Adam, love this. Inigo is one of the UK's most innovative producers - rarely disappoints

Great photo of the services station! Always fascinated me as a kid on our yearly drive down to Blackpool for holidays.
