“These fully formed sonic escapades tap straight into the heart—broken up by interspersed vocal samples and crumpled digital debris—that has Known Rebel scraping the finest segments of pure emotion-packed electronics for its audience.”

A tinge of post-industrial and wobbly bass breaks through via remix support from Jaime Irles, Mothboy, Roel Funcken, Lucidstatic, 2methylBulbe1ol and Access To Arasaka, but what Known Rebel does effortlessly within their seven contributions is a development of aesthetic melody, rhythmic balance and detailed percussion. Exuding parallel tones that once emitted from the headquarters of Neo Ouija (ie. the darker strains of Bauri and Seven Ark), shadowy symphonies wrapped in pensive layers of atmosphere and low-end are prevelant on Hollow, the duo’s debut for Chicago’s Tympanik Audio. These fully formed sonic escapades tap straight into the heart—broken up by interspersed vocal samples and crumpled digital debris—that has Known Rebel scraping the finest segments of pure emotion-packed electronics for its audience. It all gels together perfectly on “Science,” perhaps the finest of the lot, as it excavates a surplus of definitive beats and gelatinous melodic hooks that just can’t be ignored. But just as these progressively subtle pieces slice a cross-section through the imprints raison d’etre, Known Rebel (hailing from Ibiza, Spain) keeps a firm-hold on style and unadulterated groove once again implanting a seed that will surely grow within Tympanik Audio’s wide open fields.
