Corrosion' is the sound-expanding and often-stunning new album from one of Ireland's unsung electronic heroes, Anodyne'. Known for his mind shredding live shows, Colin N Cloughley aka Anodyne returns after a 14 year hiatus to present his latest opus, which effortlessly blends elements of old skool rave, electro and breakbeat into a darkly beautiful electronic LP. Thinking of himself as more of a programmer than a musician, Anodyne utilizes his own, home built plug-ins and circuit bent instruments to great effect throughout the album's 12 tracks. From the outset of minimalistic opener 'When The Sky Fell Down', swiftly followed by the epic strings and breakbeats of 'Close Your Eyes', the listener is lead into experiments in dark electro, acid and ambient before returning to the stunning 'Wasteland', with its driving electronic pulse surrounded by warm, sombre strings, evoking memories of the glory days of electronic innovation. 'Chemical Sunset', which was inspired by a drive through Dublin as sunlight faded, is a beautiful example of the Anodyne's artistic vision of techno. 'Walk Into Darkness', a dark ambient journey ruptured with clinical, austere beats leads into the albums closing track, the end of the night anthem, 'Alchemy'. Taking influence from classic electronic albums by Autechre, Black Dog and U-Ziq, 'Corrosion' was made for those who dream of the future.
