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.
A gorgeous birth to a now striving force in vaporwave music, 'Atarashī Hi no Tanjō' can only be seen in my eyes as the greatest ambient album of all time.
From its rolling samples of Japan's sleepless transit systems through to the intimate use of vocal samples throughout, the dynamic duo of HKE and t e l e p a t h cannot be praised enough for this modern classic, ever evoking that same sense of mystique I caught when I stepped off the sub-express to Moriguchi for the very first time.
