"visionary neo-tantric synth minimalism and Afro-futurist rhythms from Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, making his solo debut outside of revered work as Lichens and a sometime member of Om. 'Timon Irnok Manta' marks the start of a compelling new trajectory for Lowe, one which promises to uproot drone music and give it new coordinates by seamlessly incorporating a wider palate of influence from dub in a way which has, arguably, not been explored before. 'M'Bondo' connects his contemporary practice with more ancient rites; waves of mesmerising modular synth layer and accumulate a dark, wyrd energy not dissimilar to the recent Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement releases, but with a freer, subtly unstable element precipitating infectious, purposeful pulses and rhythms ~ before we know it we're twitching and grooving to a plonging bass cadence (you don't dance to drone records we hear you say! you might to this one) which builds and roils like Nate Young meets Frank Bretschneider while maintaining a cosmic poise all of his own making. the spellbinding B-side 'M'Bondo' builds on this sound beautifully, adding layers of his own vocal ~ sounding some way between Grouper, AFX and Popol Vuh ~ to a mixing desk-carved dub rhythm more akin to one of Mark & Moritz's most depleted Rhythm & Sound versions than any of his peers, and eventually giving birth to a quizzical synth spume which recedes and flickers thru the skeletal structure like some nano-bot organism performing esoteric duties." boomkat
los tres samples de boomkat saben a poco, pero de verdad que bastan tres segundos para darte cuenta de que es uno de esos diez, veinte, treinta, cincuenta discos de los que te enamoras cada año y que necesitas dar a conocer al primer click. el oca a oca y tiro porque me toca de facebook a veces tiene estas cosas tan gratificantes. gracias grizzly prospector!
