Clicks and cuts have never sounded so homegrown or heart-warming.

“Of greatest interest is his ability to smoothly move from percussion-led breaks to drone-led concrete and back, via glitch, looped beats…using the studio itself to create ‘natural’ feedback. Reminds me of Johnny Greenwood’s Bodysong soundtrack; can’t be a bad thing.” High Voltage

“every moment you try to chart the style it differs to keep the listener guessing…. Richard has ultimately bared his soul, in every track there are pieces of him dotted all over each tone… no wonder Concrete Moniker are so excited about his work.” Quenched Music

Concrete Moniker presents the debut album from Manchester-based electronic improviser and producer, Richard Knight: his first full-length solo offering which offers a devilishly diverse, wide-ranging and downright thrilling set of new recordings.

The reference points range far and wide: hypnotic electronic gamelan explorations; abstracted minimal techno; Steve Reich-influenced phasing minimalism; Raster Noton-flavoured glitchy electronica; ambient drones and current UK bass music rumblings.

All of these are filtered and warped into Knight's palette, and the result is something quite arresting, and totally unique. Experimentalism stays always at the forefront of his mind but groove, melody and old-school beat making in his heart.
