First of a series. Features lucid - dreamy, cloud - watching house from Japan’s Thrushez(Ume Records) and Italy’s Robotalco (100% Silk), Wickedly weird modular tone poetry from Montreal’s 3rd Kind, and shapeshifting electromagnetic dub techno from OACEM (Montreal via Morocco). Bonus tracks by Vertigo Inc and newcomer MSD.
OACEM’s tracks stretch out like long meditations, shifting tectonics and tones that demand attentive listening. Thrushez weaves effervescent and soft focus house that sounds and feels like yearning. Robotalco’s Karuta is like a half-remembered dream, a consciousness drifting between memories and melodies. 3rd kind blends ghostly, improvised vocalizations with fractured and halting modular rhythms-technoid freejazz for a mutant future.
