088 | the hermit – liber 1 – metempsychosis

The Hermit is Broque’s latest discovery, and is immersed in a fairly mystical aura, what extends as well to his new EP „Liber 1 – Metempsychosis“. As his music suggests, he is far from being a no-name and can look back already to a long and productive history in the Munich techno scene of the 90s. But for now, his past shall remain as mysterious as his music. After an extensive creative break throughout the past years, his recent EP marks not only a fresh start but also a complete turning point where everything that matters lies in the future, not in the past. “Liber 1” is filled with symbolism and transcendental references, most notably to occultism, kabbalah occultism and one of its most prominent masters, Aleister Crowley. At the same time it opens up a whole new musical microcosm formed out of dub, glitches, electronica and polyrhythmic hip hop. What sounds like an adventurous and mind-blowing combination of Adrian Sherwood, Autechre und King Tubby in fact surprises the listener with every single track. Still, the EP features a charming pop appeal, not least induced by a range of vocalists who bring in some indigenous grounding again. Each and every track tells its very own unfathomable yet engaging story and keeps revealing entirely new facets and storylines continuously. Luckily these stories did not come to an ending yet and we already are looking forward very much to their continuation as part of the upcoming “Liber 2 EP”.
