More Bokeh Versions goodness for you here. I love the story told on this page, of how the artist sent the label almost 500 tunes and said ‘pick some.’ If only choosing album running orders was so easy!
Reference points for me here are like a mashup of Muslimgauze, Saint Abdullah and Hamza El Din being brought together in righteous dub-groove harmony.
Although that there image you see is a picture of yer actual cassette, I suspect such a thing is not available to us now as the page itself only sells the digital album. I don’t have a working tape player anyway.
THis is quite earlier in his career but I heard one of the tunes on a show that Bokeh Versions did which took me to the album, and this did really impress me, it did. I think this may be the first artist to whom you can apply the term ‘glacial’ that I have posted here. I may be wrong; my memory tends to be less reliable these days.
So it’s dark, cavernous dub/dubstep/dubtech/dub techno/ambient dub (call it what you will) and it knows where its groove is, particularly in the latter half.
I have occasionally listened to some of his other works and they’ve always intrigued me. I think this may be the prod to dive in a bit deeper.
