Since exploding onto the scene in 2011, a. out have followed a path of unrelenting sonic carnage across the globe and cemented their uniquely heavy sound as an iconic mark on electronic music today.
a. out stand at the forefront of well-crafted heavy music: Folding cinematic sound design and towering bass around aggressive beats informed by heavy metal, breakbeat and dark Drum n Bass. Layered distorted leads and filtered reeses are immaculately placed between flurries of staggering rhythms, evoking auditory hallucinations and manifesting a deeply detailed sonic landscape. Their incredibly tight flow carries each weighty piece upon a platter of perfectly syncopated beats through beautifully decaying breakdowns with an underlying sense of dark nostalgia. Seamlessly shifting between tempos, they draw from the bleak sonic aesthetics of the Industrial landscape to deliver astonishing heaviness that’s as razor sharp at clubs and festivals as it is in the vast, dilapidated warehouses of the underground.
Following their debut LP release on All Out Music, a. out collaborations with renowned artists across a wide scope of different genres demonstrate both the versatility and respect for the output from across multiple scenes.
The next step in their genre-defining path releases came in the form of a. out's Psycho Club EP. Moving towards club beats and new structures, this release delivered to followers the essential sound of the project - heavy, dense and cutting-edge. Both intoxicating and powerful, the Psycho Club EP demonstrated beyond a doubt that a. out has no equal in the realm of monstrous, sub driven sound innovation.
2020 sees a. out returning to the album format with, ‘Motor Cortex Stimulation’. Standing as a cutting-edge and emblematic body of work from a. out, it artistically draws influence from across the autonomous and subversive spectrums of the underground: a symbol of social cohesion in divided times, manifested through the collaboration of independent labels and artists. Once again reimagining and innovating the extremes of heavy music, Motor Cortex Stimulation serves as a soundtrack for a disenfranchised generation.
Good production my man! Everything sounds tight well done!DJ OMAR SANTANA
From the music I’ve listened to by the A. Out crew, they’re all about a sound that impacts so hard it never leaves the mind and that sound has been transferred to their superb mix.Sid Wesley
