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.
Simply otherwordly. Alien and weird. Visual, minimalist, fractured soundscapes. Synthetic entities, half-biological half-artificial. Digital existence, but of non-human nature. Complex album, difficult to grasp in its message. Probably on a completely separate dimension, both in terms of language and consciousness. Maybe a brief window to an alternate reality where a virtual world coexists within and alongside ours. Stéfan Németh
Hooked from the very start of A1. An incredible concept executed in the best way imaginable, and it’s gonna be talked about for decades. Every track leaves me with a sickening feeling of bleakness, but I can’t stop listening. It evokes an absurd amount of thoughts and emotions without a single word spoken. jek
