Untitled Project of Maks_SF - Demos [and some other shit]
Electronics Say hello to Maks_SF, a guy who didn't know what to name his project to just simply went ahead and titled it Untitled Project of Maks_SF. Funny guy, but, he's recently been signed to Venator Music, and is described as being a mix of industrial, electronics, ambient; pretty much everything and anything that comes to mind. This release is titled Demos [and some other shit], and contains exactly what's in the title of the free to download release.

Track one starts us off with some ambient music, a low, deep, and headphone music approved rumble deep below the surface of the track. Piano is worked in at a slow pace, somber in tone, and a bit of a clatter is worked in as well. A good introductory track.

Taking on some electronic notes here and there, piano work still continues to work very well in How To?. A steady beat as well as experimental electronics play a key role in this song, and it works very nicely. More of a rhythm is broken out in Lethal, perhaps a bit too repetitive with the main beat, but the IDM flavored sounds worked well.

Dreaming wrought out some lovely synth work that played over some nice bass heavy drops here and there. It reflects what a dream should really resemble; peaceful, mystifying, and lovely all in one. Ambient textures pop up in Space Kid 2077, and features ElectroNobody. Grand sound and lovely tunes are all about in this track.

Slower and rather different from the previous tracks, N1 still makes use of little digital effects here and there, but mainly focuses on drum and bass, as well as very low pitched sounds. The second half of the song brings out some high pitched sounds and squeals, but they weren't ear-tearing, either. Fall of Spanish Ass was decent, working on synths and little chimes here and there. Once I again, I recommend headphones for this music, as it has a lot of subtle effects.

Inscape plays with more familiar structures with different sounds, a bit of a sci-fi flare to it, and this is the final song before the demos. The four tracks in this category don't really sound all much like a demo to me at all; they all really have a good, clean sound to them. The Rope was my favorite on out of these four by far, the ambient background, the piano work and the chorals roaming through them all contributed to it. An absolute blast to get through.

And, well, this is one pretty damn good instrumental album. A free release it may be, but a damned good free release it is. This man might not be known as of now, but eventually, I could see him going from a nobody to a somebody.

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.
