The Serbian representative of retirement synthesiser success Abul Mogard has a new release to impart which comes forth on Walls' own label Ecstatic. As with previous Mogard releases on VCO Records, there is a quiet, slow-burning intensity to this work, gently unfurling monstrous tones in a harmonious swell that manages to be both comforting and unsettling in the same stroke. With subtle processing at the heart of his sound, Mogard once again demonstrates just how powerful the right combination of signal paths can be at evoking strong emotions, using the most glacial sonic gestures possible as a throwdown to an impatient age.
There's no doubt that Laurie Osborne's style is ever evolving and always captivating, regardless of what phase he's in. His new EP on London institution Tempa provides three awesome cuts proving why he still is one of the UK's finest. Title track 'Avebury" is proggy, moody and downright epic in a way that would make James Holden of Nathan Fake blush. Next up is the beatless and experimental soundscape of "Auburn Blaze" with its layer upon layer of sinister pads leading up to some truly demonic sub bass snarl that's just got to be heard! Finally "Wandred" carries on with the experimental vibes on this haunting and demonic ambient piece that truly plunders into the depths.
