Aesthete 'Obfuscation' (Computer Club)
Computer Club presents; Aesthete (aka Thom Barnett) with his debut release 'Obfuscation'. A 4 track EP of bass-heavy minimalism.
Micro-precise percussion bursting through minimal electronics with chattering industrial machines, the 4 tracks take an experimental approach directly to the dance floor. We first encountered the unique Aesthete sound in a dark former ballroom in Sheffield in early 2016 and were mesmerised by his sonic assault.
As the name suggests, Barnett's skill isn't confined to audio. A talented designer, he runs Mamnick, an internationally renowned brand sold online and via outlets including a flagship store in Tokyo. Mamnick clothes and items blend Sheffield craftsmanship with a love of cycling and a sharp aesthetic eye.
Everything Barnett turns his attention to is expertly crafted and this debut EP on Computer Club is no exception.
