Giant Claw http://giantclaw.bandcamp.com/ As Giant Claw, visual artist and Orange Milk Records founder Keith Rankin dissects the history of synth music. Taking inspiration from several decades of electronic music and blending them into something simultaneously complex and danceable, Giant Claw uses this generation’s collective ADD to great effect. Cosmic meditations, Nintendo melodies, and new wave drum machines collide, often within the same song. Though borrowing heavily from retro obsessions, there is something thoroughly modern in Giant Claw’s synth jams.

“Aphex Twin meets Terminator in a horrible Blade Runner fiture. (meant in the nicest possible way.) the whole thing begins with a kind of looped futuristic corwd noise with a metallic techno feel. but not techno like you imagine from the mid-late 90s. no "here's Johnny". it makes me think possibly what's going through a robot with ADD's muddled head stuck on loop. in fact, that's the feel i get from the sound in general. there are some really strange but unique sounds going on throughout the whole thing. from the slow grooving beats hidden beneath the sounds of industrial destruction in a few of the tracks to almost dance beats, which are buried beneath utter disturbance. some really great overdriven drum sounds the whole piece. there are however some more mellow sections that still have with the feel of technology gone wrong.”
