Aside from clearly having a way with ambient drones, the mysterious producer known as Alexandre Navarro is also kind of a nifty entrepreneur. The artist has set up three imprints since his debut into the scene back in 2004; the EKO Netlabel, SEM Label and DISQ AN are all a product of his hard work, so it's no wonder that he was called up to Pheek's Archipel imprint for a new album. It would be reductive to call Anti-Matiere an ambient album, however. The LP is full of many different colours and shades, and even its most deconstructed moments are full of zest and kinetic flow. The opening "Phosphorous" is a good example of this, a gentle swarm of drones guided by subtle rhythmic infusions, and the same goes for other tunes like "Amazone" or "Contempie", two magnificent escapades into the deepest corners of the ether. In short, one could almost class this sublime piece of work as an ambient work for people who are easily bored from the genre. It';s for those with a certain kind of vision of drone that this will appeal to.
Featuring dialogue by Oscar nominated actress of the silver screen Joan Lorring, Norwegian ambient legend Geir Jenssen aka Biosphere presents two atmospheric and moody excursions into the deep. The man behind such seminal releases like 1997's Sub Strata LP presents "Black Mesa": a deep and mesmerising IDM cut interspersed with samples from the 1936 film The Pertrified Forest. Then we have got the brooding ambient house epic "Turned To Stone" with its breathtaking strings arrangement supported by hypnotic synth textures and chilled beats. Jenssen never fails to impress over his 30 year career and this fine EP is no exception.
