So That I May See You Again
TBR: 25th July
Wistful nostalgia and acceptance of the story so far brings Fennec to this culmination of emotive progression in the style of spliced and adjusted house. Who ever the album is truly about is hidden from us, yet in the description the words seems to entice the listener into feeling it is about them. Then we, the listener, can gently place our own feelings about special memories into the place of the music. This abstraction of truth to form bonds across music is a simple yet clever piece of emotional engineering that intrigues me into wanting to learn more.
A crackled sample of speech opens the album as a smooth rhythm rolls forward and brings home the dream. More vocals walk over the rhythm all the while stories and emotional conversation, with rootless foundations, waver in and out of the sound like distant lanterns. New sounds find their way through the lattice work of beats as layers of musical sample and voice over mingle and surge with the progression of the percussion. Dramatic ambience holds fast as the dynamic of the sound flows from one tangent to another, all centred around the global sonic experience of tranquillity and presence.
The ingredients to each number fit like well ordered patterns pieced from sources found all over the record collection. Touchy drums bring on sensations of salt and pepper seasoning with clever phrases knitted into the looping sounds. A relaxed groove threads through the otherwise fast paced and shifting music which utilises sounds and rhythms riddled with the latest digital effects. The tracks mirror each other in neatly displaced distortions which allows a gradual evolution of intent within the realms of the piece. As the album moves from number to number, we are treated to a sit down epic that can be danced to as well.
Pieces of Gramatik and Blockhead merge with more underground sensations such as DJ Sprinkles to form a catchy and motivated collection. Listenability is good and as the tracks work well together, they can easily be enjoyed alone as part of a mix. Entertaining and homely, I am glad I own this record.
