Second on my list of musical things to admire, is a guy called Plastikman. He basically created minimal (in Detroit in the ’90s), and was responsible for a large proportion of my interest in minimal and tech-house. The man made music about acid, on acid, for people taking acid.
This is what he looks like.
And this is what he looks like on acid
So his music is a slow, pulsating mix of ambient sounds and hard, analogue, fat bass. What I imagine life would sound like if you took away all the words.
He uses simple, clear tones, and masterfully subtle changes in panning and resonance make for a superb flowing quality. It is his minimal yet throbbing use of synths, drums, bass, and ambience (occasionally only a few at a time) which pull one ever deeper and deeper into the spiral of the music’s soul..
