Locked away in the Swiss mountains, Task Horizon have since delivered their biggest release of 2020. Comprising of four brand new tracks, their ‘Raised by Robots’ EP pulls together the talent which has made their sounds so easily identifiable. After spending years perfecting their craft, they’re about to unleash another set of tracks on Evolution Chamber and once again joining the ranks of Receptor and Magnetude, the label’s looking as one of the strongest contenders of this year. Its unstoppable release schedule is a testament to this.
‘Legacy’ stands as the EP’s starting point and on top of zapping bass stabs, plucked electronic strings and a climatic first breakdown, it pulls you deep into the world of Task Horizon. Following suit is ‘Shrink Ray’, with rolling drum rhythms and twists of sonic crackling beneath its percussion. ‘Mindfragger’ focuses more on the group’s chaotic side, drawing you in through its fluctuating note patterns and driving synthesis. Then finally the package is ended by ‘Drowning in Fire’, a track which goes for the jugular for another selection with cutthroat precision and chaotic drum sequences. The refined mechanics of Task Horizon ooze through the record whilst it ducks and dives through its jagged bassline across ‘Drowning in Fire’, showing their penchant for carefully orchestrated sonic chaos.
The story of ‘Raised by Robots’ streams across both the EP’s music and artwork, which is a defining part of Evolution Chamber’s short history. It’s a label of epic and creative proportions; through artists like Task Horizon, they’ve been able to blur the lines between drum & bass and the sci-fi reality of their musical vision.
