Currently, little is known about electronic music producer and artist, novellus, as he’s part of a trend among some electronic artists to be extraordinarily reclusive and mysterious. Indeed, eschewing the notions of packaging the artist and the music in a way to be easily and thoughtlessly marketed and consumed, novellus and his contemporaries attempt to remove the personality from the music, with the hope that the music stands up for itself. “reign,” the first single off his forthcoming EP, untitled is comprised of layers of cascading and pulsing synths, glitchy vocal samples, swirling electronics and skittering percussion, and in some way it bears a resemblance to both Steven A. Clark‘s Fornication Under Consent of the King and Beacon – that is in the sense that the sound novellus has crafted is atmospheric, moody and ultimately, icy.
