Set in Sand

The Set in Sand project emerged from the late 90’s Midwest electronic scene, crafting a sound years beyond the minimalist techno aesthetic that dominates the abstract electronic music genre. By combing elements as diverse as Steve Reich-esque sculptures of found sound and hip-hoppish boom-bap style beats with the sharp digital textures and densely-programmed insanities of IDM pioneers like Autechre and Aphex Twin, Set in Sand bends genres in a satisfyingly edgy-yet-headnodding manner.
