    Video by #NicHamilton. The track comes from #Geiom's new album, 'Black Screen', released November 12th 2012:

    ...This is Kamal Joory's third album as Geiom, not counting two (in 1999 and 2000) as Hem and 2002's Magic Radios with Morgan Caney. 2007's Island Noise continued his association with the dubstep scene, which included releases on the Skull Disco, Deep Medi and Planet Mu labels, and appearances on Tempa's Dubstep Allstars and Rinse mix CDs. But before that was 2001's Sellotape Flowers, a freeform collection of electronica for Neo Ouija (a label which Metamatics, Xela and Apparat have also called home). On Black Screen this whole history comes together -- but the album certainly doesn't showcase Geiom's repertoire in a museum-like sense. Instead it's a fertile cross-pollination of his work's many different facets, fully combining for the first time. The title doesn't seem to suggest shutdown or dead ends, but rather the sense of possibility you felt before powering up an iPad or a Commodore 64 for the first time...

    Released on #Frijsfo Beats December 20, 2010


    We’re proud to announce #Geiom’s full debut for Frijsfo Beats, following his remix contribution to Volume 2, our various-artists collection released earlier in the year. The Nottingham-based producer is known for casting his own sound in different lights, reflecting multiple genres in the process. His Frijsfo 12-inch is doubly exciting in that it makes a new departure into the tempo and rhythms of ‘half-step’ drum ‘n’ bass. The tracks have already earned support from ASC (Autonomic), DJ Alley Cat, Boxcutter, Autechre and West Norwood Cassette Library.

    Beginning around the millennium, Geiom’s music appeared on electronica labels such as City Centre Offices, Neo Ouija and Skam. A few years later he started to feel dubstep’s gravitational attraction, coinciding with his feature in Kode9’s mix for the influential Dubstep Allstars series. Next was the success of his album Island Noise, before approaches came from the Deep Medi, Skull Disco and Planet Mu labels. Since 2006 he has operated his own Berkane Sol imprint, an outlet for work such as his epic single ‘Reminissin’, plus material from the likes of Appleblim, Brackles, Shortstuff and Bowly.

    Recently releases have foregrounded a sultry UK house dimension, but for this latest material, the closest reference point is drum & bass’s thriving half-step sub-genre. ‘Resi Claart’ unfolds with a similar steely, Terminator-like persistence, although instead of militantly in thrall to the grid, it’s gracefully executed. In certain ways the vibe is closer to nineties ambient jungle, although it couldn’t be mistaken for a product of either scene – fleshed out as it is with Geiom’s distinctive harmonies in brown, dystopian mode.

    B-side ‘Stel Dum’ is subtly woven around live drum and Moog tracks, pivoting on a skeleton of robotic calypso percussion as the title half suggests. Gradually the framework is stuffed with digitised silk and spice textures, building up a palette as lush as that of Island Noise and making for just as absorbing a listen.

    It might have been simple to capitalise on the existing reputation of Geiom’s music in other styles, but we think it’s more than worthwhile to bring listeners this new stage of his evolution. We hope you’ll agree.

    ---------------------

    *Resident Advisor review: It's fair to say that the Autonomic movement has busted drum & bass wide open: but the black hole they've torn into its fabric is widening at such a rate that by 2011 it's going to drag all the dubstep producers into its churning core. All-purpose wizard Geiom, after finding his own unique techy-tropical dubstep sound, is the latest 140'er to go 170 (basic drum & bass tempo for all you laymen).

    Resi Claart is the more distinctively Autonomic of the two, tapping into the same streetlight melancholia: desolate but melodic chords, dynamic and exaggerated drum programming, and reserved but gently nudging subs. However, where much of the appeal of Autonomic is vested in the sensation of warm breath invading vast, frigid silences, Joory leaves no such space to be infiltrated. Resi Claart bustles and whirs like a busy machine, the drums interlocking in a closed circuit and the pads specked by all manner of beeps and quick synth motifs.

    On the other hand, the closest analogue to flipside Stel Drum is ASC's earlier and heavier Autonomic experiments: reverbed metallic drums, clouded sub-bass, and quirky cyclical synths. But unlike Clements' clean lines, Geiom's drums echo and stall in unpredictable measures, like they could exist in two places at once, as the bass climbs up the walls only to dive-bomb into hidden pockets. Autonomic may be very much machine music, but to call Geiom's that would be missing the point. (Andrew Ryce)

    Released December 3, 2012 on #Frijsfo Beats


    In the past our releases have had a lot of support from excellent DJs -- but never so much as with #Geiom's Glesprin EP. This year Ben UFO, Sully, Beneath, The Black Dog, Brackles, Midland, Spatial, Al Tourettes, Hackman, Happa, West Norwood Cassette Library and of course Geiom have all played tracks from the EP.

    On 12th November Frijsfo Beats is releasing the Black Screen CD, Geiom's first album in half a decade. But as we favour vinyl over all other formats for DJing, we had to put something on wax too. This EP contains tracks specially selected for mixing in the club, none of which feature on Black Screen.

    As much of a cliché as it sounds, the title track is a guaranteed floor filler. Over nearly seven minutes it builds unstoppable momentum, driven by constantly mutating percussion and a bubbling, evolving bassline.

    The title 'Ferrite Gaps' is a clue about the involvement of magnetic tape in these tracks. During production, parts and sounds were bounced to and from cassette. Each track was also bounced down to a classic analogue two track machine by Matt Colton at Air Studios as part of the mastering process. Needless to say it all sounds amazingly warm and distinctive -- partly because of this attention to sonic detail, partly just because it's a Geiom record.

    'Digitithe' is a collaboration with Hizatron, a Nottingham resident like Geiom. His recent EP with Bashley (Discharge, on #Wigflex) has deservedly turned heads much further afield than Nottingham's thriving techno scene, with Sonic Router, The Quietus and XLR8R all singing his praises. Despite bringing in outside influences, 'Digitithe' defines Frijsfo's intentions as a label as well as anything in the back catalogue.

    released November 12, 2012 on Frijsfo Beats


    Average producers take rhythms straight off the shelf. #Geiom takes their prefabricated units apart and builds improbable machines, capable of transforming, interlocking and changing speed. The second striking feature of his music is the signature melodic style, a strange, sweet and sour tonality that can't be mistaken for the work of anyone else. Already he has released nearly 20 12s with unique strains of #dubstep, UK garage, house, funky and drum 'n' bass running through them, interwoven with a fabric of microtones and strange harmonics.

    This is Kamal Joory's third album as Geiom, not counting two (in 1999 and 2000) as Hem and 2002's Magic Radios with Morgan Caney. 2007's Island Noise continued his association with the dubstep scene, which included releases on the Skull Disco, Deep Medi and Planet Mu labels, and appearances on Tempa’s Dubstep Allstars and Rinse mix CDs. But before that was 2001's Sellotape Flowers, a freeform collection of electronica for Neo Ouija (a label which Metamatics, Xela and Apparat have also called home). On Black Screen this whole history comes together – but the album certainly doesn't showcase Geiom's repertoire in a museum-like sense. Instead it's a fertile cross-pollination of his work's many different facets, fully combining for the first time. The title doesn't seem to suggest shutdown or dead ends, but rather the sense of possibility you felt before powering up an iPad or a Commodore 64 for the first time.

    This is just an outsider's interpretation, however. Geiom himself says the title came out of the dying moments of a mobile phone, when he imagined its digital life flashing before its eyes and lost conversations leaking into the ether. It also relates to ancient studio technology which he uses despite its unreliability. One of my sampling keyboards will sometimes play ghost versions of sounds that were deleted years ago, he says. This kind of crosstalk runs through the album, which buzzes with hordes of chattering sonics, while the haunted keyboard appears on interludes credited to Geiom's alias Hem. The Hem tracks form interferences in the flow of the album, enabling it to switch between tempos of 130, 140 and 170 beats per minute. The longer sections in between are coherently mixed together, making the whole thing into a seamless network of music.

    In 2007 it was unusual to hear an album at the forefront of UK dance music like Island Noise. Lately the pendulum has swung the other way, arguably, with consistent and inventive full length releases counting for more than 12s and EPs. Nonetheless Black Screen stands out in a crowded field. If its predecessor was judged on its quality and individuality, then Geiom's latest is due even more attention.

    This is Kamal Joory's third album as Geiom, not counting two (in 1999 and 2000) as Hem and 2002's Magic Radios with Morgan Caney. 2007's Island Noise continued his association with the dubstep scene, which included releases on the Skull Disco, Deep Medi and Planet Mu labels, and appearances on Tempa’s Dubstep Allstars and Rinse mix CDs. But before that was 2001's Sellotape Flowers, a freeform collection of electronica for Neo Ouija (a label which Metamatics, Xela and Apparat have also called home). On Black Screen this whole history comes together – but the album certainly doesn't showcase Geiom's repertoire in a museum-like sense. Instead it's a fertile cross-pollination of his work's many different facets, fully combining for the first time. The title doesn't seem to suggest shutdown or dead ends, but rather the sense of possibility you felt before powering up an iPad or a Commodore 64 for the first time.

    This is just an outsider's interpretation, however. Geiom himself says the title came out of the dying moments of a mobile phone, when he imagined its digital life flashing before its eyes and lost conversations leaking into the ether. It also relates to ancient studio technology which he uses despite its unreliability. One of my sampling keyboards will sometimes play ghost versions of sounds that were deleted years ago, he says. This kind of crosstalk runs through the album, which buzzes with hordes of chattering sonics, while the haunted keyboard appears on interludes credited to Geiom's alias Hem. The Hem tracks form interferences in the flow of the album, enabling it to switch between tempos of 130, 140 and 170 beats per minute. The longer sections in between are coherently mixed together, making the whole thing into a seamless network of music.

    In 2007 it was unusual to hear an album at the forefront of UK dance music like Island Noise. Lately the pendulum has swung the other way, arguably, with consistent and inventive full length releases counting for more than 12s and EPs. Nonetheless Black Screen stands out in a crowded field. If its predecessor was judged on its quality and individuality, then Geiom's latest is due even more attention.

  • Geiom - Yllw Grn

    5:59

    released September 10, 2012 on Frijsfo Beats


    This three-track EP continues #Geiom's fruitful relationship with Frijsfo Beats. It comes ahead of an album to be released on Frijsfo later this year, the follow-up to 2007's Island Noise. In a recent interview, Geiom reveals it will represent all the different aspects of my work.

    This EP is tightly focused. Across previous 12s and downloads for Frijsfo, Geiom has developed a signature sound – busy and colourful, a vivid contrast to his slower-paced work. Here it progresses in new ways.

    Marshall Syahi kicks into gear with an octave-diving bass drop. Although digital dancehall might be the closest match, it's rhythmic DNA takes on new, recombinant forms. An audible jungle scuttles in and out of the bare bones – snaking hi hats, modulated chirps – never static but tirelessly evolving, as if exposed to some benign mutagenic element. The track's weaving path – intruded by shifting, psychedelic detail – could only have been plotted by Geiom.

    Martin Kemp's Terr has been surfacing in DJ sets for almost a year now, but is finally due for release in September, following up Kemp's recent 12. Geiom's version adds an insistently pulsing bassline, injecting new motive force and an edgier sense of drama. The general effect, though, is to destabilise the whole sonic – smearing it with cathedral-like reverb and rogue squiggles that could only be called Geiom-esque.

    Bowing out on a high, Yllw Grn is equally distinctive. It lunges forward in starts, as if imitating kung fu in 'drunken master' style. Partly it resembles an elliptical answer to #techno. But then a rubber-band bassline springs into play – a kind of low-end bounce not felt since the early, breakbeat dubstep of Artwork and co. #2step
