Luvencie - This Glut
Shaun Ringsmuth, known for his work in Glassing and Street Sects, has recently started up a solo side-project named Luvencie. Both hardcore and noise are the main components of Luvencie, which meld into an industrial-hybrid in my opinion. Like his other projects, Ringsmuth does not stray away from hard subject matter such as anxiety, body dysmorphia, and death. His latest single under this moniker is ‘This Glut’, which explores the troubles with binge eating. The single then is just as chaotic as one would expect, and serves a delicious slice of disorganized and turbulent electronic mayhem.
There’s an undeniable, chaotic allure to ‘This Glut’. The entire opening minute of the single seems to serve as nothing more than an introduction to Ringsmuth’s self-described “claustrophobic shame of binge eating”. The background samples and chaotic samples give off inner turmoil and the inner-arguments and self-reflections that Ringsmuth is going through. Arguably, my favorite section of the track comes around the two-minute and twenty-five second mark. Background wails, brighter synths, the unstoppable drum machine, and a general complex industrial-noise mix makes for a heightened sense. Ringsmuth’s DNA has carried over from Street Sects, that’s for sure, but with Luvencie there’s a finer produced and cleaner element to his layout.
This is but the first time I’ve heard of Luvencie, but now I’m interested in seeing what else this industrial-hybrid has going on. And I’m hoping that you will, too. Seven-and-a-half out of ten.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
