Mosco fell asleep in Tel Aviv and awoke days later in Berlin. This is his first offering for the ESP Institute. On side A, 'Akachi' plows straight in with its relentless rolling bassline, a thick blanket enveloping any and all breathing room. An array of squelches and atonal pads struggle to rise above the trudging rhythm, while live percussion slides in and out of frenzy. On the flipside, 'Nobody Else' shows us Mosco's more ethereal side. Beautifully programmed drums draw us in as the accentuated hi-hats and claves elegantly pierce rhythmic synth work, until finally we're carried away by mystic keys layering in heavenly glissandos. These two songs will make you thirst for potent potions.
