“Sumptuous blend of synth heaven” Nemone, BBC Radio 6 Music
The first EP from Albert’s Favourites' synth-production duo Modified Man focuses on; analogue sounds, throwing out heavy editing, recording music with as few processes as possible and grabbing performances as single takes.
Modifications: Set 1 is a diverse set of tracks recorded over the last 18 months as Dave Koor and Scrimshire found their feet, writing together for the first time.
Among these six tracks we have Modification 1, the very first step into this new project, the first composition and experiment. Every part of this track was made as live. Even down to Scrimshire manipulating the tape echo on Dave Koor’s Rhodes solo as an integral part of the solo, each responding to the other. This set out the concept for all that came after.
Alongside it you will find broken beats (Questionable Things, System Is Fatal) a deep, deep Cobham cover (Stratus), some overloaded, synth-bass-down-tempo weirdness (Hythe Path) and bubbling, ambient soundscaping (Fractus).
