Bawrut & گليثر٥٥ Glitter
في السماء (Fe Samaa)
Ransom Note Records
Out 28th September
Taken from the prominent In The Middle LP and featuring the exquisite talents of Moroccan DJ and vocalist گليثر٥٥ Glitter, Fe Samaa enchants and inspires through Bawrut's familiar escapist imagination. Founded upon Balearic design and retouched with modern ideas, this Orbital style composition fuses a multitude of influences. The Arabic spoken word element of the piece reflects a story of migration and movement. The words speak of the hopes for a decent life we all have and the disparity between those able to achieve it and those who are not.
The music opens with Gregorian chants and spoken word. Haunting words echo through spacious chapel voids and mysterious atmospheres. An electronic composition is untied, raindrop like melodics scatter in introspective scales as bass thumps in with progressive swerve. The spoken word evolves into singing, repeated words sing the title as a chorus. Fe Samaa grows in prowess, like a filling glass of liquid, glowing in illuminated splendour. More spoken words appear, dramatic and empowered, harmonising under-layers of vocal elevate the poetry as drums thump in time to a heartbeat.
The second track is Crossing For A Golden Blanket. An ethereal sound lifts from the nothing, drifting and humming to its inner fire. Bass lifts the sound, rolling in like a mountain-range. The tectonic forces drone and add pressures beyond the sky. As the intensity rumbles and rises, a second rhythm floats in and attaches to the groove. Deep and resonant bass with surging power holds the tone in rhythmic bouts of hypnotic relevance. Sensitive vocal samples wash through the mixture of elongated zaps and scrolling bass kites fluttering through sensual mists.
Grumbling skies surge with persistent potential as house-style synths break over the distant hills. Vocals from LIBERATO present another side to Bawrut's influences. An upbeat rhythm snakes its way upwards as sensual close-in vocals sing a whispered progression. The rhythm continually climbs through evocative samples and comfortable synthesisers. Repeated vocal lines build an escalation of dancing spirit and soulful expression. JE ‘O TTENG E T’O DDÒNG provides an upbeat disco atmosphere to meld with the blurry deepness we know from the artist.
