Belgian electronic act Cubic returns with ‘c64’ EP ahead of new album

Belgian electronic act Cubic returns with ‘c64’ EP ahead of new album

Belgian electronic musician Franky Deblomme is gearing up to launch Cubic’s upcoming studio album. The album will incorporate 808 drums, Kraftwerk-style percussions, and nods to 80’s technology like floppy discs and vintage PCs.

Cubic’s brand new 4-track EP, “c64”, available on Bandcamp, is inspired by the iconic Commodore 64 computer.

This EP is a journey into vintage synthesizer sounds. The lead track “TITT” blends classic electro elements, including 808 drums, dreiklangsdimensionen snare, and analog basslines. “Offline” showcases a distinct kick and a Novation bass station 2 synth. “Art In” features 4/4 kicks and a bassline from the Analogue Solutions ‘Fusebox synth’, with a Moog Sub 37 patch, echoing sounds from artists like The Hacker and Commuter. The concluding track, “B C L”, employs a 90’s bassline from the Modor NF-1, a rare Belgian synthesizer, and mirrors the electro style of Anthony Rother.

Deblomme exclusively used hardware gear for these tracks, emphasizing the tactile experience: “Nothing beats the fun of twiddling knobs”.

The EP is readily accessible on Bandcamp.
