In seeking to explore music’s place in time and space, Emotional Response has cast a wide fusion. Interpretations on krautrock (Black Deer/Montezumas Rache), techno (Not Waving/Roy Of The Ravers), kosmische (Brain Machine), polyrhythms (Durian Brothers/Don’t DJ), psychedelic (Fuxa/Tomaga), balearic (Secret Circuit/The Naturals), drone (Abul Mogard/Matthewdavid) and ambient (pretty much the rest of the catalogue) has prevailed a meandering journey, with some surprises.
This continues with this ‘archival’ release of Brainwaltzera’s Marzipan EP. As can occur in the nature of electronic music, the self-released 2016 original came and went in a blink. Hyped and sold out, soaring resale values testify a record successfully combining old and new, of known and unknowns, within a romanticised view of sound.
Organic, smart, melancholic, the deliberately mysterious nature of the artist fits. A life in movement, this music stands as testament. Freedom, a propensity to ignored complacency. 5 tracks become 4. A retro-futurist brain dance. Blurred, intelligent, trippy, deep, heady, all and more.
