Now available: Microfilm’s 1,000,000 Neon Hz
Portland, Ore. electronic duo Microfilm present 1,000,000 Neon Hz, a collection of ten dancefloor-centric tracks. All beats, no ballads.
Less cerebral and lush than 2013’s AggroPastels, this new release has a cleaner, harder, and sharper sound. It’s a more physical, visceral experience overall; speakers over headphones, Neon over Pastels.
With vocal help from fiery soul singer April Brown and icy Black Box Recorder (now solo) vocalist Sarah Nixey, Microfilm glide through their own blend of acid, tech house, big club hooks, and minimal techno.
But now… less talk, more lasers.
Turn it up. Play LOUD.
