For the next release on EPMmusic, we introduce Athens Computer Underground with an EP of deep IDM, measured Electronica and experimental Electro.
Athens Computer Underground is the moniker of Athens based musician, Pantelis Theodoridis who is also a member of the minimal synth / punk group Regressverbot. With this new project, he commits himself to the worship of the TB 303 sound, the glorification of acid electronic music and the devotion to the visions of sci-fi literature. Romplers, sequencers, drum boxes and classic acid machines are all played live according to the Ten Midi Commandments.
The EP opens with the acidic electronics and harmonious melody of Cantharidine before picking up the pace with dappled beats and variegated layers on second track V.A.L.I.S.. On the aptly titled Jitter Theodoridis uses a stop/start construction that adds weight to its melancholic refrain and Electro styling, which are further enforced on deep EP closer, Four OClocks as ACU takes his experimentations into the sci-fi world with computer vocals over a driving beat.
