Inner Surface Music are very proud to present the first album on the label from Grey Branches (Yves De Mey). Neuroclaps LP is a journey into the immersive world of Grey branches, bringing together sounds and influences from techno, jungle, dub, experimental and ambient music.

́Arches ́ opens with bass oscillations that swell and build into slow rhythmic patterns with machine grooves, teasing us for what lies ahead. ́Acrylic Hunger ́ has stepping drums playing around swung basslines and modular synthesis layering into a pulsating dance floor pressure. ́Bevel ́ builds around cavernous textures, laser like drums and analogue riffs. Killer sound design bringing elements of dub and techno together in its own form.

́Rushed Corrosion ́ is built for dirty basement clubs, raw synth oscillations weave together creating a wave of tension with the driving power of techno with jungle ideology. ́Automatic Gallows ́ slows down the tempo and enters the experimental realms, a slow undulating drum palette meets cosmic spaced out pads before collapsing into a black hole. ́Split Limb ́ hits the floor hard with a wall of cold distorted bass, experimental kick drums and rugged rhythms. Syncopated experimental music by nature that remains direct and powerful for the dance floor. ́

Rammed ́ playful melodic sequences and atmospheric landscapes melt in harmony around broken kick drums and stripped percussion, pulling the listener closer to mesmerise you further. ́Unpaced ́ is a short but intense piece of techno experimentation, sharp and delicate rhythms unfold around ethereal layers of noise and textures.

́Neuroclaps ́ the title track is a perfect example of the Grey Branches sound. Hard in dynamics, while remaining funky and driving for the dance floor. The sound of early electronica with a unique feel of its own. ́Synthesis Swindle ́ closes with deep otherworldly layers of bass, choral pads and sonic artefacts submerging the listener into a state of enchantment.
