Make yourself some coffee or a cup of tea, because now it’s time to delve into the world of Anklebiter. In his latest rendition, we get to follow his journey throughout the sea, distressing calls from the lighthouse and many more interesting visual and braindraining experiences. Somehow, when I listen to Anklebiter it stands out quite much, not because he in any way sounds utterly unique, but because his creations turn out in that unique and interesting fashion you’d want it to. This album features a total of eleven songs, seemingly hand-crafted and filled to the brink with variation.
Anklebiter is the alterego and nickname of Tanner Volz, a portland-based IDM producer. Working with electronic acts such as ML and Thine Eyes. Besides this, he’s also an active photo and videographer for the music labels n5md, Tympanik Audio and Signifier. His soloproject Anklebiter have been released on multiple labels, Tympanic Audio being the latest, where he will release his upcoming album Raintree, coming soon. I got took the opportunity to ask him about his new album, his older albums, the studio process of them, what he thinks about IDM and much more. Tune in for this fine dose of IDM-love!
