I’ve been anticipating this BMTM release for a while following the Conduct remix of Blu Mar Ten – Hunter. Both pieces are thoughtful pieces from a darker side with creative percussion at the core. BUY > http://www.blumarten.com/store
Meraki opens with some beautiful solemn strings before breaking into some frantic wooden shot snares accompanied by percussion which echoes and reverbs around as if in a vast open space on.
Borderlands, packed full of menacingly twisted hoover bass, knocking around sinister vibes as some strong percussion ricochets throughout the soundscape
Following their LP release on Teebee’s imprint, Subtitles, Nausika bring their brooding minimal sound to
Dominion really has that special something. A dark, stripped back piece with creeping wooden percussive elements and a deep underpinning bassline. Dominion escalates progressively as a haunting vocal begs never to be held down. Perfect for a little breakdown and lots of subtle variation to pick the ears up.
The B-side sticks to the dark theme. Echos has more of a roll to it than Dominion yet the lashings of vocal echo the vocal presents a sinister aural experience.
Lavish is a sublime, subtle piece where the constant flirtation between bassline and top layer is a dominant factor. If you could call a sound cute, well then there are plenty here.
Diaymano was one of the most experimental peaches from the album in terms of drum work. Kimyan Law takes it a step further as he lays into the VIP. Nice
Kimyan takes his sound slowly on Chai. Peppered with far eastern vibes mixed in with orchestral and choral this is a treasure trove of a dub.
