about

Watch the official video for "Birds" here: youtu.be/RGHJ_J2k7Qo

Combining elements of Synthpop, IDM and Ambient Electronic Music, Stephen Hummel has crafted an album that looks back on the history of Electronic Music, while carving a new niche of its own. Those familiar with Hummel's subtractiveLAD project will find that Meld includes his signature blend of analogue elements fused with lush ambiance but with a greater focus on vocals and song-structures.


Igloo Magazine:

igloomag.com/reviews/stephen-hummel-meld-self-released

"A well-oiled release that will surely agree with fans of Bitcrush, Tobias Lilja, Syntax and even mid-80s Depeche Mode for that matter."


The Big Takeover:

www.bigtakeover.com/recordings/stephen-hummel-meld-self-released

"MELD is an impressive, stunning, out-of-nowhere release that satisfies whilst leaving the listener wanting more."


Textura:

www.textura.org/reviews/hummel_meld.htm

"In truth, Hummel's level of skill and craft is so high that he could probably take on any genre and turn out a good result, and Meld is no exception in that regard."


Cyclic Defrost:

www.cyclicdefrost.com/blog/2012/07/stephen-hummel-meld-self-releasedbandcamp/trackback/

"...there’s certainly more than you’d usually expect lurking beneath the deceptively accessible tracks collected here, making Meld a more pop-oriented collection from Hummel that retains plenty of intriguing substance."


Side-Line:

www.side-line.com/reviews_comments.php?id=48258_0_17_0_C

"This is a kind of antidote to dark-ambient music, illustrating how ambient music can be fascinating without being dark and haunted."


[sic] magazine:

www.sicmagazine.net/articles/1155/stephen-hummel-meld

"Well ladies and gentlemen, sometimes simplicity is genius. "


Skeleton Crew Quarterly:

"Hummel’s exhaustive approach pays off with a dedication to detail that most fringe-dance records would prefer to loop over."
