MultiColor - From The Outside
IDM MultiColor is the solo project and creation of Russian musician Anton Guskov. From his humble roots as a child who spun 80s pop records, solidifying his love for music, Guskov would eventually get into music theory and sound design. It was only a matter of time before the young man went on to create the moniker MultiColor, which held all his influences under one roof that caters to IDM. 

After hearing MultiColor's debut EP, "Cyclicity", it was only natural that the label would sign him and release the EP themselves. From there, a fruitful relationship would form and lead us to the present. And the present offers us the gift of MultiColor's debut full length album, "From The Outside". 

And, what's to be found within this album is some extremely smooth, purely IDM based songs that have very decent lengths. Gustov manages to keep songs going from five and a half minutes to near eight minutes without breaking a sweat; I was engaged the whole time throughout each one of his songs, and my attention was never really swayed for the briefest of seconds. 

Atmospheric and hypnotic space like sounds meet Gustov's creative fingertips in songs such as 'Special Time Stretching' and 'Permanent Ascent', while others, such as 'Sacramental Moments' and 'History of the Senses' can take you on digital trips to age old, unforeseen places and monuments. My favorite song came in the form of 'Three Languages', which not only blended contemporary guitar elements with his technical advancements, but also brought the near future upon me as visions flushed through my head while I listened to this song. 

While this album was good, and I can't really pinpoint any complaints, I can't say it absolutely astounded me as other IDM artists have in the past. This is not blasting MultiColor in any sense; he has shown a competent potential that many others only wish they could grasp at. He has a good head start in forming his ideas, now he just needs to push himself to make his music more unique and better than the others, and he'll be able to reign supreme.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
