about

On this release, we veer into melodic, glitch-beats territory with Montreal-based producer gonima (a.k.a. Evan Magoni).

Drawing on experience with a variety of projects including drum duty in math-rock band Boy Friends, Magoni’s compositions as gonima are informed by a solid grasp of both musical structure and sound manipulation. The gonima project traverses house, ambient, lo-fi hip-hop beats and glitch with a consistent melodic thread running throughout each track.

Out of Sides is particularly reminiscent of classic IDM pioneers of the early 2000s. With influences such as Plaid, Arovane and Hizmi, Out of Sides explores the more introspective side of electronic beats, blending cold timbres with lush melodies to create a subtle emotional impact. On each of the 6 tracks, Magoni weaves a layer of mysticism and natural wonder on skittering beats in various ways, be it through dream-like synth lines or manipulated acoustic samples.
