"Subspace electronica with wires and tape..."
The Amber Tapes, originally from Manchester, turn their obsession with vintage analog tape machines into dark experimental soundscapes, often part of multimedia installations. Tracks are built organically, with live electronics and acoustic instruments intricately layered over processed field samples, with stuttering beats from drum machines that have seen far better days; each element added and taken away until something happens. Music for cult b-movies yet to be made... For licensing work email here.
