Jaguar Mín is the moniker of South Wales producer Harrison Banfield. Priding himself on his eclecticism, his ongoing series of short EPs feature contrasting styles, but with a focus very much on experimental side of electronic music.
Banfield painstakingly pieces together rattling, arrhythmic sound sculptures that sound like something altogether otherworldly and downright different. His most recent release, Poll / Splix, is an excursion to a duo of utterly eerie, chilling and unnerving tracks. ‘Poll’ in particular, with a swirling noise of odd samples, hard-hitting non-sequential beats and warped vocal, sets up a sinister, forbidding Aphex Twin-esque atmosphere. ‘Splix’ is marginally less off-the-wall but it’s just as inventive and thrilling exhibition of sound-manipulation.
Don’t just take my meager words for it, check out ‘Poll’ & ‘Splix’ below. The full package is available to download from bandcamp, just ‘name your price’.
