A playful spirit must be behind whatever builds these bold & bubbly beat-textures ... a round & organic audio-discourse supervenes on jumbles of jagged sonic edges. Well done![-O-O] + Much love![X-X-]
Favorite track: Fully Automated.
Following his 2016 debut tape, 'A Revolution in Customer Service', Scottish producer Object Agency returns to Kit with his first LP proper, 'Abaa Cove'.
While ARICS hovered in a cloud of viola-fuelled static, Cove kicks off with an alarmingly crisp KLANG. This is bell-clear, defiantly positive dance music: the sound of a data farm coolly exploring its every corner, laughing, lifting free of its moorings and floating into space. Recommended for fans of YMO, Craig Leon, Beatrice Dillon.
When ambient has meaning and depth. To me, a clear nod at Blade Runner as my friend siobbaas has once told me. Will be one of the soundtracks of my confinement in these days of pandemic. Gets me out of here waiting on a platform for a Shinkansen bullet train in Japan. Olivier Tison
