Autoclav1.1 - Broken Beats for Broken Hearts (CD)
Release Date: 01/21/08
Among electronic musicians, there are few able to infuse a real human element into their compositions with the sincerity and conviction of Tony Young, aka Autoclav1.1. In his compositions, amid the scattered, paranoid breaks and steel-cold threads of industrial ambience, threading through the somber melodies and creaking IDM-infused spatters of noise, is a striking honesty and fragile intensity that is both unexpected and endlessly rewarding. It is this tense balance of synthetic, sterile soundscapes and scathing vulnerability that sets this project aside from most acts in the dark-IDM genre, and sets it well above most of its contemporaries. In anticipation of the next full-length release, we are pleased to bring you Autoclav1.1's first CD release on Hive Records. Broken Beats for Broken Hearts is a collection of 14 remixed tracks from Autoclav1.1's first two CDs, You Are My All and More and Visitor Attractions, reworked and reinvented by some of the most acclaimed purveyors of modern dark electronics and hard industrial rhythm.
