New Mecanika: “Explorer”

Shiga-based producer Mecanika loves to explore the texture of noise, which makes “Explorer” an apt mission statement. It’s a rumbling number, one that finds an artist who was always pushing towards maximalism committing, loading the brief song up with whirring synthesizer notes and brighter keyboard notes in the mold of post-Nakata electro-pop. Yet instead of build a pop song, Mecanika crafts a persistent electronic number you can practically feel. Get it here, or listen below.
