If there's a small micro-genre of music that doesn't really exist but I certainly pretend it does and love it, it's certainly the thing that I call sensory overload electronic music. There are very few people who I put into this genre ever really, because it seems rather cheesy. But, when it comes to an artist like mnttaB, I don't think any other word than sensory overload can describe the music he makes. The weird, disorienting shouts and layers of electronic tones and noises all come together into these well structured songs crafted by mnttaB are just some of the more fantastic and weird things coming out of Electronic music. We're very excited to give you his long awaited new LP "Welcome to the planet, dear." We think this album is great, and we hope you do too.
