Emptyset – Emptyset (Caravan Recordings CVAN010 – 2009)

There is a tunnel. And there is light at the end of it. Or is it the Black Hole when Emptyset takes us to the world of shades? Starting with hardly audible hum “Aleph”, the A-side is filled with evil growling of machines that accelerate slowly – pitching 33 RPM record up would help those who are in need of more speed. And am I the only one to perceive in “Gate 1” fragments from “Flash” by Fix and “Sharevari” by A Number of Names? “Beyond” is less depressed but still keeps the tensions alive with hypnotising determination. C1 or “Completely Gone” is […]

DUST OFF: Digital Justice – Theme From: Its All Gone Pearshaped (Fragile Records 14 – 1996)

A release from the year 1996 that gives a meaning to the name of Transmat sublabel – two fragile and long sound excursions that hover between ambient and trance.

Bocca Grande – The Bremen Orchestra EP (Mathematics 020) – 8/10

Lugupeetud muusikasõbrad, Ameerika Ühendriikide plaadifirma Matemaatika on toonud teieni instrumentaalansambli Suur Suu uue teose pealkirjaga “Breemeni orkester”.

Avapoole “Procedere” on justkui pikk intro Erik Satie valvsa pilgu all – tasapisi jõudu koguv silmatorkamatu biidiga klaveripala ei muutu siiski igavalt lounge’ilikuks. “Adlibitum” jätkab klaveriga, võttes sisse troopilisi salsa või cha-cha-cha elemente.B-poolel töötleb eelnevat Hieroglyphic Being ehk Jamal Moss ägedama loopi ning jackiga. Hoogsalt algav pala jätab mulje, et […]
