AMN Reviews: Muhd – Dilogia (2014/2021; Cyclic Law)

Dilogia is a set of rough-textured drones and layered synths from Muhd (Samuel Vaney). Originally put out on cassette in 2014 and quite difficult to find, this is the album’s first official CD / digital release. Centered around the aforementioned drones, Vaney adds and removes colors by modifying their forms. He varies oscillations, pitch, grittiness, tempo, and combinations thereof. The feel is windswept and cinematic, while the mood shifts between anxious and forlorn. The album slowly evolves from a more forceful effort to one that toys with minimalism. To that point, it begins with Severing, which consists of stacked, oscillating drones with a driving beat, while the last track, Kychtym, evokes the sequenced rhythms of the Berlin Shcool.
