Once upon a time, the fact that artists collaborated via the internet was a big deal. Still, the Scone project offers one of the concept’s finer results, fusing together Dutch electronic artists Funckarma (longtime believers of cyberspace production via their hip-hop work with Shadow Huntaz) with the elusive Kettel. Their full-length, Maze, conjures a super-slick universe where insanely tricky rhythms and sophisticated melodies collide: “Swieso,” “Do,” and “SNTH65” offer Scone’s stirring retakes on old-school IDM, while “Luttel” dissolves into 3/4 funk shuffles. A rare find and an absolute must for IDM aficionados.
