Listening to The Euphoric Hum’s Flow (Vuzh Music) several times, I was thinking of multiple ways to describe the sound. As any blogger or netlabel curator can tell you writing about music, describing it in a way the gives one the feel of what the musician has accomplished, is extremely difficult. Yeah, I know, boo-hoo for me. This difficulty is why bloggers sometimes resort to genrification of albums but this has its own traps. Flow is an album that refuses the boundaries of language — it is just electronic music. Flow is everything you might think electronic music is and, at the same time, everything electronic music is not. Stephan Dragesser aka The Euphoric Hum writes, “Often my pieces are based on little loops, and the tracks are based on long sessions experiment with sounds, to bring the sound in a form, make a track, is always a problem for me, because I can basically get lost….” Getting lost is apropos of everything and nothing when writing about Flow.
