BiographyBest known for unleashing dark moods upon a beatless, experimental canvas in the tradition of Ambient pioneers Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, Jon Hassell, Klaus Schulze, and Tangerine Dream, Apollo Records artist Mark Van Hoen (aka Locust) rethinks his earlier sonic aesthetic on these recent tunes. An accomplished collaborator on a variety of well-known Techno and Post-Techno projects -- including one with Trip-Hop/Ambient Techno trio Seefeel -- this native Londoner returns with a solo undertaking that revitalizes his polished production techniques by diluting Jungle and Trip-Hop stylings in a wash of blissful Ambient textures. Burying a barely detectable jazz influence that pays tribute to Miles Davis and John Coltrane in sofa-friendly, cushioned rhythms restricted to relaxed headphone listening, Locust’s new sound embraces a subtle pop element as sweet female vocals and soulful male musings flow over feel-good sound effects and gentle breakbeats.
