Music Review

gribbles – The Requiem EP

Sad to say, I am a bit late to the party on this one. The Requiem EP, from UK-based producer gribbles (aka Graham Thorpe) was released on June 15th and represents an exploration of different electronic music styles across its four tracks.


Starting with the ambient-infused IDM of the title track, the EP sets a high musical bar. The second track, What Are the Media?, steps up to the mark, establishing a kind of synthwave-styled spy groove before adding an extended sample of Noam Chomsky. Hive is up next, and here Thorpe juxtaposes a circuit pulse and organ before adding a bass and keys reminiscent of those French purveyors of retro electronica, Air. The EP closes with the aptly titled Airwatching, an atmospheric piece of chillout music.


I am not going to suggest that this is music for everyone. I couldn’t see this being played at parties and on dance floors around the world. However, as a fan of the broad range of sounds and moods that electronic music has to offer, I was very impressed by this. It was food for my mind and soul.


Simon says 4.5 out of 5 stars.
