Action Research #189:

Mezzanine Swimmers
(New York, NY)
https://mezzanineswimmers.bandcamp.com/

"Clips, flips, switches, and breaks writhing with a steady thump, it’s oddly seductive and tasteful. Mezzanine Swimmers, solo project of Mike Green, is poised with a relationship to the loop that assumes stasis until hitting a switch. Green builds form by pushing through repetitions, layering hooks and auxiliary themes, working the sampler. He draws from primary sources (blown-out synths, whining circuits eating their own, incidental noise, an English rendition of a Brazilian classic), maintaining aesthetic unity through the manipulation of secondary motifs, vertical arrangement, and vague, obfuscated vocal gestures. Building it up and breaking an elegant and powerful stasis, that’s the joy, his language.

"Green adopts the work of producers before him and interprets it through the jump-cut that harsh noise presupposes. He draws the beat flip toward the jump scare but stops short of the horror that others have achieved through a similar pairing."
-- excerpt from a review by Ben Levinson at Tiny Mix Tapes
