Calgary artist April Terry (Topology) is one of the first individuals to tap into the Eastern European brand of minimal techno that’s been creeping across the global underground in recent years.Topology’s previous releases have been largely conceptual and progressive in nature. After a year-and-a-half of launching highly impactful parties and helming her own label, Topology has returned with a matured, renewed focus on music production. As many writers have summarized, the minimal techno of Eastern Europe creates a maximal effect with minimal elements, a feat that’s in no short supply in her newer tracks.In 2018 she released the Format EP released under Calgary's MAGNETASKOPE founded by Chordlust. All tracks on the EP incorporate various trails, hints and elements of tape, vinyl, or digital noise providing layers of life, energy, randomness, and perceived motion unique for each. The release masterfully celebrates both the imperfect and the unrefined, and demonstrates Topology's renewed focus on music production emphasized by a highly evocative style that succeeds in doing more with less.
