Taking up residence in a mansion called the Sematic Sanctorum, located in Sint Niklaas City, our new player Sematics takes a fresh role within the rebel organisation to help operate against future threats.
After a car accident severely damaging his hands and ability to perform surgery, Dr. Sematics searches the globe for a way to repair them and encounters the path of Thrill Recordings.
With his training from the underground resistance, he becomes Surgeon Supreme and a practitioner of both the minimal and mighty arts. He has a suit consisting of two main relics, the Cloak of Subsonic Bass and the Eye Of Automation, together with a large assortment of mystical objects which give him added powers.
One of them is ‘Axon’. The vortex-like, mathematical structure is effective in all its simplicity. Its fierce buildup is countered by its well-balanced use of hitting elements, taking the listener into his world of surgical precision.
The 2nd gem, ‘Time Is Running Out’, is a maelstrom of shifting synth patters that induce a feeling of being awoken too early from anesthesia. It’s clockwork percussion is the only crutch that keeps you from being sucked into a vortex of time displacement.
‘Institute’ is a perfect way to close down the EP by creating a bass-heavy, vocal fueled stomper that takes one deeper into the realm of his work. It’s a dark lobotomy distilled into a track that reduces everything to its bare essentials.
Sematics is aided along the way by his freshly appointed informants, Substance And Program. The collective is providing central intelligence services by making the remix a storming version.
With the help of his treatment, Sematics has restored our health from the damages made by conformism.
