SR Track of the Day: The Enabler & The Enabled – Mr. Bill
Electronic guru Mr. Bill invokes transcendent, glitched-out, space-age bass, occupying especially innovative sections of the bizarre cultural trenches of Australia’s music scene. This technological funk demands attention and promotes a dynamic kind of complexity that is accessible but still very situated in IDM ideology. “The Enabler & The Enabled” explores gliding synths and melodic swells sprinkled with infectious vocal cuts, held together by Mr. Bill’s mechanized but highly original and colorful style. Tight percussive elements, a flowing song structure and universally funky vibes find Mr. Bill at an especially polished and well-rounded stage in his career. Dance hard, dance soft, or just soak it in – either way Mr. Bill is taking over now.
“The Enabler & the Enabled” will appear on IRL, Mr. Bill’s new album which drops 3/14. Mr. Bill is an expert musical machine who has churned out 5 albums, 9 EPs, countless singles, collabs, and mixes; all are of high quality, extremely enjoyable, and almost entirely available for free on his website along with a plethora of Ableton tutorials and other useful and entertaining content. Mr. Bill will also be making a rare U.S. appearance at Infrasound Music Festival this year so be sure to catch him in Wisconsin with Tipper and more in June.
