MR.SMiFF – Delirium

Each month we shine the spotlight on one SoundGym member by reviewing one of their tracks for our Music Spot feature. This month we focus on `Delirium` by Bulgarian producer Stefan Hristov, AKA MR.SMiFF.

Hristov is a truly multidisciplinary artist; an author as well as a composer, performer and producer. He collaborates in audio-visual performances, and has created installations as well as releasing music through more traditional channels. MR.SMiFF is just one of his musical projects, but `Delirium` still stands as a great showcase for his explorative and experimental nature.

The track is a twitchy, skittering, bass-heavy groover; experimental without being inaccessible. Underpinned by an undulating sub, the beats constantly shift and develop whilst richly textured glitches complete the soundscape. The track is accompanied on YouTube by a video created by Hristov`s regular collaborator Anna Bacheva, and it wonderfully accentuates the dark, dystopian atmosphere that the producer conjures on this track. The production itself is beautifully balanced; warm but with the kind of clarity in the upper frequencies that is required of this style of music. `Delirium` is complex, yet comprehensible, and is the kind of music that really rewards repeated listens.

If you want to know more about Hristov`s work, the best place to get an overview of his many projects is on his website. You can also check out the MR.SMiFF project on Soundcloud, Facebook, Twitter, Bandcamp and YouTube.
