94 Diskont is undoubtedly a standout in the field of electronically advanced, glitch-heavy music. In addition to having clear resonance with those primarily interested in process, this record resides in an autonomous and highly aesthetic sonic universe, where bits of production and granulated noise easily melt into warm, repetitive arrangements. 94 Diskont was made with a lot of productive mediation and gadgetry, but the seams don't show. The textures are thick and the melodies are challenging, nowhere more so than on the epic opening track "Do While.
Whether or not you can tolerate 94 Diskont’s unorthodox sound, it is hard not to see its influence on music since its production. Though few artists would categorize their music as pure, unadulterated glitch, the genre’s influence can now be heard in electronica, dance, and even on the outskirts of pop music. This album will always remain a classic because of its originality and timelessness.
