Exael – Dioxippe
Following the inimitable Ghostride the Drift EP supplied by D. Tiff and Uon’s XPQ? experience, Dioxippe tracks the entrancing solitary activity of Exael. Recorded between 2014-16 in Chicago, Dioxippe gravitates between caustic sound, eroding dub techno, zealous electro and paint-peeling rhythmic noise. Its embracing and emotive energy transcends these descriptive measures with balanced, alchemical molding, in conversation with Exael’s previous, diaphanous album for West Mineral, 2018’s Collex. Gazing into the matrix with Exael, one observes fascinating gems gleaming along craggy surfaces, marred by onerous industry. “Degraded and corrupted club tools for the adventurous DJ” or the archeological listener.
