Dervish is the second single from SMD’s forthcoming ‘Whorl’ album, and is one of the album’s more overtly techno cuts - the hammering repetitive kick matched with a looping, simple melodic hook. The tough metallic chords that ‘Dervish’ opens with grow in intensity before being off-set by the ethereal sonic explorations of the track’s conclusion.
Non album b-side “Gamma Gulch” is a much more laid back affair – detuned oscillators drone and squeal over a washed out, dreamy melodic sound bed. The ‘Dervish’ video again features the custom oscilloscope hardware used in the album’s artwork.
