Torus | Cavemonsters Are Kind

Like all good things, it’s taken a while to surface, but after three years of existing on the internet as a website, mix blog and general theatre of opinion, Sonic Router is now also a record label. To quote one of our good friends our label was ‘established after receiving the sort of demo that makes you want to start a record label’. The demo in question came from 18 year old Torus, (formerly known as Deadstokdonut; the moniker under which he released ‘Television Spleen’ on Lowriders Record’s Beatitude compilation) and his self titled debut EP. 

6 tracks long it’s a deft exploration of mood that sets a torrent of found samples, ambient swirls and little wayward riffs to post-Dilla drum patterns. It’s hazy, crackly hangover music. A collection of tracks that manage to sound archaic before they’ve even been mixed down, fusing Joeri Woudstra’s unique approach to production with a sense of isolation and introspection.
