Complete ILLMATRIX series of farcical tracks videoloops by Awe IX here:

Rainbow Island is a quartet born in Rome in 2013. Since its foundation the band confirmed themselves as skilled explorers of virtual dub, deranged non-narrative storytelling and manipulations of digital riddim music in between fourth and fifth worlds.

Audacious and dynamic polydimensional dwellers, Rainbow Island are the most up-to-date sonic guide to our complex contemporaneity and, after the LCD Jiāng swims in “Crystal Smerluvio Riddims” culminating in the Bobblers direct encounters of “Dances Of The Mangroovian Bobblers”, ILLMATRIX is the ominous title of their new work on laserdisc released by Quinto Mondo bureaucrats of Artetetra.

In this transitional new album, featuring darker, heavier sonorities in regard to the ones the project is known for, the band confronts with a physical and compositional diaspora, having almost all the four members living in different countries in between Italy, the U.K. and Taiwan,  thus slowly building the sound and concept of their new album on the basis of a back and forth process of files and information piling in a non-linear order, in an ever growing complex stack of stems, even influencing their complex archeofuturist mythology to obscure experiments of geolocalizations in sound and parallel, overlapping timelines.

ILLMATRIX is a glitchy detour from Rainbow Island’s colourful sonic chromatisms toward a  win95.exe non-figurative and unorthodox cartography of exotic, alien undiscovered languages and dimensions of sound, which boundaries developing the project’s saga are constantly and obsessively redrawn by Rainbow Island themselves by means of grimey sewer-like grooves and staggering concrete, urban sound design.
