Dynamic, scene-setting electronica youngsters The Pnuma Trio have been known for their forward-thinking compositions and moving, powerful improvisations since their explosion onto the scene in 2004. Not so young anymore, Ben Hazelgrove, Alex Botwin, and Lane Shaw are proud to call STS9’s very hot 1320 Records their home as they gear up for a new release in 2010.
With a refined, glitch-informed electro/hip-hop feel and all the dynamic energy of their DJ-killing live show, the new album represents a significantly evolved version of Pnuma’s futuristic sound; tighter, more focused, and higher resolution. The long synth solos have been replaced by careful layering; instead of building each song to it’s climax the band percolates on hot remixed urban ideas, letting the production create the spacious atmosphere.
