Berlin based producer Blush Response returns to Megastructure for his first full length release since 2021’s Reconstitution, NEUROSCAPE
9 tracks of absolutely screaming and energetic Post-Industrial techno / IDM for those looking for sounds on the fringes of reality. Driving, pulsating, organic alien grooves populate the dense landscape of sound and showcase the next evolution in Blush’s sonic signature.
Check Out: B1 – Locutus
Neuroscape features collaborations from Bon Harris of Nitzer Ebb (a rare vocal appearance!) on Chained, and Richard Devine on Foldspace Transition – a track that was started in Devine’s studio in Atlanta and then completed in Berlin. Blush also makes his first apperance on vocals in nearly a decade, with the opening track, Submit.
Verdict: Two levels of enjoyment here, firstly the music itself and secondly the sound design, not necessarily in that order. Banks of modular synths at work with Blush Response at the controls pushing the limits of machines capabilities. The clean production skills allow the layers of each element to cut through the mix holding the music expertly back from the edge of sensory overload. To state it simply, this is heavy techno, with moments of grinding builds and whirling metallic sounds that resonate while the beats hit hard, rolling unrelentingly like a blazing Juggernaut towards its final destination. Post-Industrial techno Bliss, if you can handle it.
