Smoke Notes

Forged in the electrical fire of industrial; nurtured through the apocalyptic feedback of art rock, experimental and all things disruptive; and championed by the most influential names in EDM and beyond, Huoratron is deeper, stranger and harder-core than whatever you thought was before.

Huoratron came to life in 2003, the brainchild of DJ/producer/mad 8-bit scientist Aku Raski. The bearded one’s beginnings are shadowy, as are his methods: There are reports that he was discovered at a Nordic metal festival, and that he’s developed a bit of code that mutates a track every time it’s downloaded, making it unique to every individual listener. A survey of his videos reveals a night world of hidden horrors revealed: The demons between the sound waves (“Cryptocracy”); the predator inside the vixen (“Corporate Occult”). He once described his music as “the smell of something burning.”

Cryptocracy is a journey of destruction, driven by chip synths, distortion and gut-punching bass. Recognizable sounds peak their heads out occasionally: A house riff on “Transcendence,” a dubstep pass on “Sea of Meat,” stripped-down techno on “A699F.” But they’re swallowed up by an apocalyptic wave; the noises, textures and sonic sneak attacks that are Huoratron’s sig­nature, born more from a feeling than a genre focus.
