"Design A Wave is an electronic music project based in London. Occasionally collaborative, it is usually the home of musician Tom Hirst's solo recordings. Previous releases on Rush Hour distributions "no label", Helm's Alter imprint and Alien Jams should be indicative of the musical effects one should expect on listening. The recordings on this release were made during a residency at the Klangendum studio in Rotterdam, Netherlands in 2014 and make use of the extensive collection of older analogue synthesisers. The raw materials that were sufficient for the rise of synth pop, kosmische and industrial recordings in the late 70s and the genres themselves are here re-explored, the archaic nature of the instruments audible and adding to the haunting, apocalyptic effect."
