Bigup Magazine - Issue #3

San Francisco's Eskmo, a.k.a. Welder (Brendan Angelides), hits up with mind-melting sound design and future style riddims on his new HYPERCOLOR release. This April EP highlights the reason why I'm always so drawn to Eskmo's productions: they are musically layered like an abacus, absolutely psychedelic, and reflect a special place in the bass world where intense composition, the mind, and ball-smashing grooves do a dance together. His fresh off collaborations have shattered dance floors and dubstep boundaries, such as his work on Speakers Corner with Dj Quest, and his third release on his Ancestor Label takes it even further. Lush, haunting, and oozing boom-blap-beats completely saturate the listener in hi-fi audio, while meticulous, foley inspired sound design forms polyrhythms within the tracks. The moment the title track starts, it strikes you as being particularly close and teases you into thinking a west coast lazer excursion will happen. But alas, so much more ensues as arpeggiated synths tickle the upper register and keys tell a tale of many memories coming through on the these tunes - to me at least. San Francisco hits you with a definite SF bounce, sub bubbler and pan / water sounds fly around the spectrum, reminiscent of Stockhausen and Walkman. With his unique style, Eskmo consistently bends the synthesizers and the sounds together in a symbiotic and uplifting harmonic shuffle that carries seamlessly throughout the release with great emotion. I Dream I'm Flying highlights the two-step inspired version of this very specialized acidic flavor that Eskmo brings up, and shows how he always takes dance music and turns into into beautiful compositions. Groundbreaking work from the West Coast's most thoughtful bass producer.

Headphone Commute Review

I've had my eye on the West Coast sound of San Francisco, Portland and LA, for a while now. The Glitch Mob, in particular, featuring Justin Boreta (aka Slidecamp), Edward Ma (edIT) and Josh Mayer (Ooah), have been producing some glitchy, breaky, and instrumental hip-hop. I'll bet my money that Brendan Angelides, who has two monikers, Welder and Eskmo, has been hanging out with them. Releasing the Hypercolor EP as a digital download on his very own label, Ancestor Media, Angelides mixes up the sound dubstep with deep rumbles of hip-hop, where the crowd sways with the rhythm, clapping their hands with the beat. And his sound has already caught the eye of some heavy hitters. See, for example, his remix of Bibio's Dwrcan on Warp, and his 12", Let Them Sing released by Planet Mu in 2009. What a great roster of labels to have in his biography! Although this EP is almost a year old, I still return to it, for its solid, polished sound. Be sure to pick up his latest split single with Eprom, Hendt / Lands and Bones (Warp, 2010), and, even more exciting, his collaboration with Amon Tobin, calling themselves ESKAMON, Fine Objects (Ancestor, 2010), which comes with a free WAV samples and Ableton pack along with the release! Sounds like a remix invitation to me! Recommended for the likes of the above, as well as Prefuse 73, Daedelus, Richard Devine, Nosaj Thing and all the usual West Coast suspects.

SanFran Dubstep at its finest

I absolutely love this album. The great thing is that every song is different in some way. I love how "Hypercolor" is in 3/4 time at the start.

Biography

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '00s, '10s

California-based electronic musician Eskmo (Brendan Angelides) has produced music in numerous styles, ranging from drum'n'bass and glitch-hop to ambient and downtempo, but his work has always possessed a dramatic, cinematic quality. His tracks often drip with strange, alien-sounding voices and feature bizarre edits and unexpected tonal shifts. While his music is often as wintry as his name suggests, there's still plenty of warmth and humanity to it. Over the years, as he's progressed and evolved,...
