The back catalogue of Manchester-based producer Sarmism reveals an artist who has strayed to all four corners of electronic music and then some. ‘Lessons’ is a glitched-out album that unfolds like a pre-planned technical malfunction, making his plethora of modular hardware sing a strange, beautiful garble to the language of cerebral electronics. The fractal beats of ‘Shame’ next to the heavy atmospheres of ‘Angels In The Wire’ are cases in point. A lesson in no boundary electronics with a few resounding wubs to take home with you.
