World Passing By
TBR: 24th November.
A haunting soundscape reveals a temperate and thoughtful record, dancing notes and breathing rhythms encapsulate a spaced out and dreamy mood. Progression takes its time, as the pressure slowly builds to a crest, the sound almost suddenly cuts to a brief silence. Veil of Time is a short and interesting track which paves the way for something more dance worthy in the form of Resynthesis.
A push of fresh vibrancy is inserted as the rhythm playfully scores a melody all on its own, and background steadiness gives a holistic flavour of fun and easy going music. There is a definitive upbeat core to this five minute beat fest, it is distinctly different to the first track with loops and rhythms dominating the sound.
An experimental selection of ideas stretches to another bow as Stacked Moments brings more rhythm to the turn-table, this time with a synthesiser leading the way. Treble heavy effects steer the intensity into a more heady place while a quick drumbeat gives rise to a hypnotic two tone bassline. As if each track is a step up from ground level, now its time to notice how high we have climbed.
Max Cooper collaborated with Rob Clouth for the final work on this E.P. A synthesiser experiment in which tones were transmitted over a radio gives a warm and analogue sensation to the filling. Catchy loops run underneath as the repetitive lead synth builds slowly to the rise of further harmonising tones. This number directs the dance energy to a higher pace, invigorating the atmosphere with a charismatic and optimistic flow.
As a record, the work progresses extremely well. There are no two tracks like each other, and the depth to each one gives way to a highly digestible selection. Craftsmanship is apparent in the patience behind the pace of each number, deliberate care is taken to create a well moving and artistically relevant serving of fresh music.
