“The generation of number series is related to objects of geometry as well as cosmogony. From the Monad evolved the Dyad; from it numbers; from numbers, points; then lines, two-dimensional entities, three-dimensional entities, bodies, culminating in the four elements earth, water, fire and air, from which the rest of our world is built up.”
Perc’s Monad V is suffused with hypnotism. Despite being built upon beats that move in repetitious motions, it refuses to lull you into a sense of security. It’s deep techno with sinister drone sensibilities. The off-key undercarriages swell and the structures strain and swarm. Snatches of vocals appear and fizzle away into white noise. Brutal patterns veer off into elegant angularity. Monad V demands you to expect the unexpected.
