Not to end up being confused with Kevin Saunderson’s groundbreaking home project Inner Town, this Innercity is a single task of Belgian experimental musician Hans Dens, who works tape label Why Therefore Serious. Through a large number of limited cassette and vinyl fabric produces, Innercity presents a warped, occasionally frightening perspective towards the 21st hundred years cosmic drone picture. His lo-fi synth-based soundscapes are nearer in spirit towards the shamanic mysticism of Popol Vuh than Tangerine Wish or Cluster, but he doesn’t timid away from severe, unsettling textures and reviews sound, resisting categorization as another modern revivalist. After greater than a dozen cassette and CD-R produces on brands like Rotifer Cassettes, Ruralfaune, and Hobo Cult, Innercity’s initial vinyl fabric discharge was 2010’s Upcoming Lifestyle on Belgian label Aguirre Information, an unsettling trip proclaimed with eerie voices and periodic throbbing digital rhythms. Several even more produces implemented in 2011, including a tape on Not really Not really Fun (Boy in Forest Looking to Hotwire the planet earth), a 7″ on NNA Tapes (Dada les Apocalypses), and LPs on Discharge the Bats/Ikuisuus (Backworld) and Aguirre (Terrestreality). Innercity’s 4th vinyl fabric LP, A Lion’s Baptism, premiered by Seattle-based Additional Information in 2012, and pressed his audio into noisier, even more disorienting directions. Carrying out a few even more handfuls of tapes and a 7″ one (“Fading World Love”), Innercity came back to Further Information in 2015 along with his cryptically entitled 5th LP, ABABABABABABAS (Blue Lion Kid), which eschewed synthesizers and only electric guitar, violin, and results, leading to his harshest, most apocalyptic function yet.
