On September 11th , Bristolian futurist Krust presents ‘Constructive Ambiguity’ – plus an exclusive B-side called 'Tree of Life', released via Crosstown Rebels.
Both tracks on the single appear as if beamed-in from the edge of the universe, way beyond the precipice in a metaphysical netherworld.
With disregard for structure tropes, ‘Constructive Ambiguity’ is an engrossing and unpredictable speed through various atmospheres and environments that belies its 12-minute length. A careering space-shuttle-bassline bounces through an asteroid shower at high velocity, slowing at intervals when the cosmos becomes clear, before the next onslaught.
‘Tree Of Life’ harnesses the power of repetition with an incessant militant beat, which eventually leads into a formidably musical passage of dark, ominously beautiful cinematic ambience that evokes the profound unknown.
It’s clear this pre-eminent electronic icon who constantly and integrally blew minds throughout the 90s and 00s is on his best ever form, having explored radical new philosophical, mental and creative
processes to return revitalised.
