Dig a bit of ambience. Think I got hooked somewhere between Sigur Ros and the filler tracks on "Bright Like Neon Payphones". Bad Panda records sent us over the latest track from NQ out of Germany, a man whose been making cut up collages out of the everyday for the past 10 years on his laptop. I got to warn you, don't listen to this alone in a dark room.
A writer, journalist and artist living in Cologne, Nils Quak resides between ambient, electronic post-digital cut-up collages and contemporary electronica, his pieces combining sonic landscapes, deconstructed rhythms and distant field-recordings into a dense blend being both highly abstract yet still emotional.
