Dwarf Star Conspiracies
Wolf Trap Records
TBR: April 17th
The CPU Records head-boy takes a visit to Wolf Trap Records to administer three tracks of home-brewed Dallas electronica. Aiming for the gloom of basement dancing and eclectic congregations, Blixaboy unites the scene with a hot extended single which focusses his competence in a triad of sonic expression.
Dirty rhythm opens Air Maidens with speckles of static and distortion. It scatters beats in bursts of digital colour. Bass builds beneath with airy pads which resonate and glow in harmonic daydreams. Expressive and gut-wrenching bass drives forward alongside signposts of percussion which litter the sides in neat mentions. Vibrating and reverberating tones gather and shake with temporal intensity as the drums build with extra hats and snare.
Next, a tingly beat unwraps in petal-like motions of clarity. Hard-nosed beats strike a taught surface which snaps in response. Bursts of synthesiser radiate over the top edges like rays of glistening reflected sunlight. Dripping tones bounce and twang in discordant globules which sit atop rhythmic markers. A melody fathoms from the underneath, sparkling droplets and chiming harmonies ring out in various considerate actions. Dwarf Star Conspiracies takes us deep into caves of wondrous energy.
A summery rhythm opens for the final number. Shock Gibson begins like a dance track that eventually breaks open like an egg into a mixture of sugar and spice. Randomness in various rhythm patterns coalesce to form a sleek line of beats which builds and grows in digital direction with each bar. Bass resonates in crisp and tuneful scatterings which bounce and quiver as the drums adjust with bursts of variation.
