Austrian electronic imprint Affine will release the debut EP by fellow countryman Zanshin, a six-track record of subversively unique compositions called The Humdrum Conundrum. Like on “You I I You,” the producer’s music contains the hallmarks of many genres currently in vogue: the tenderness of post-dubstep, the energy of club-friendly bass tunes, the dense atmospheres of drifty synth music, and the vocal hooks of futuristic house cuts. Even more impressive is the fact that Zanshin finds a way to spread that array of sounds through an eight-minute track without running out of steam or allowing the composition to grow tiresome. It’s certainly a promising start for the young music maker. You can hear the rest of Zanshin’s forthcoming release here.
