  • Herva is releasing his first album in five years. Arriving September 16th on Planet Mu, Seez finds the Florence-based producer breaking from his usual sampling methods in favor of homemade hardware and software programming. The result is eight tracks of generative synth tones, off-kilter rhythms and experimental and IDM-leaning sounds. Following the release of 2017's Smania, Herva set out to build his own mixer. This work led to him co-founding a Eurorack-compatible studio hardware company called Audio Gear Obsession. Much of the gear he built was used in the making of Seez. "How I make music is kind of weird for most producers, but I like it, and I plan to dig further," he said. "You can think of Seez as the alpha version of what I and my system are able to do." Listen to "Xid."
