I love music I can’t label. Alright, normal people would label it “weird” but that’s okay by me. Aestate‘s Reken Harvest (Crazy Language) is indeed weird, but — as always — that’s a good thing. As the duo of Chris Huff and Sven Piayda say in their press release, “they are often labeled as electronica or idm while their constantly changing sound generates abstract grooves as well as technoesque straightness.” Obscure but straight forward, don’t you think? Reken Harvest is their second free release and it is the second and last part of a two EP series, the first being Dominion Empire (Digital Kunstrasen). Each track on Reken Harvest is a deviation from the prior track, yet the experimentalism of each “IDM” track ties the album together. I recommend that you download both releases as they do both fit together and give a good overview of what great music Aestate can produce.
