Since 2008, Tapage has become a staple of the Tympanik family with two well-received solo albums ‘The Institute of Random Events’ in 2008, ‘Fallen Clouds’ in 2009, and his collaboration album ‘Etched In Salt’ with Meander in 2010. Now this glitch guru of The Netherlands returns with a stunning new collection of works titled ‘Overgrown’.
Tapage presents fourteen playful new songs full of intertwining pops, clicks, and glitchy rhythms surrounded by warm bass tones and winding melodies. From the mischievous dsp-laden beats and embracing melodies of “Loss”, the warped low-end bass and clutching click-n-cut percussion of “Xyloplax”, to the massive basslines and delicious glitch rhythms of “Leptoid”, and the smooth ambiance of “Pockets”, ‘Overgrown’ manages to reveal as well as entice with a range of emotions and styles. A serendipitous and unique journey perfect for headphone excursions.
