Released on U-Cover Records as a 3-inch CD, Pulse is a 5 track collection of clean and polished electronica, primarily upbeat but with a brooding edge.
Track 3 (Asthenopia) was originally written for a showcase compilation to accompany a live 2 day STFU event in Germany at which I played.
“Pulse from Mint (Boltfish co-owner Murray Fisher) offers five examples of his immaculately polished style, ranging from uptempo (the spirited “Térkép” and writhing brooder “Collapsed Airway”) to melancholic (the sweet and stately “When You Glow”), all of which show that Fisher’s melodic gifts are as well-developed as his programming skills. Promoting an almost old-fashioned IDM style that’s wholly free of digital dirt, Fisher showers his sleek tracks with glistening synth melodies and crisp beats.”
“Murray Fisher, of Boltfish fame, delivers another excellent little release for U-Cover. Lively, perky, melodic electronica tracks in the classic Boltfish vein that will get your toes tapping in no time. Nicely put together rhythms have an electro leaning and the top notch production gives it all a really crisp flavour. Coupled with the lovely tones and sweet sounds you’ve got a cracker on your hands. Great stuff once again.”
“Above all, and at the risk of wearying the reader with our repeated passion for MINT, we feel it’s worth once again pushing the point of proclaiming that he is one of all the best artists of his genre…”
