Review: It's not exactly a bad way to start 2017 with a collaborative release featuring Legowelt, SFV Acid and Haron, but that's just how the BAKK collective like to operate. The imprint from The Hague is increasingly on our radar as of late, and it's thanks to a vast selection of electronic sounds that touch all corners of the underground spectrum. Synth wizard Legowelt kicks things into motion with the placid waves of "Wild At Heart", a beatless sway of sonics that manages to construct a poignant groove out of delicate melodies, and this is followed by the even more barren landscapes of SFV Acid's "Offline Wave". Finally, Haron gets all polyrhythmic with "Marimbaman", a delightful, playful groove made up of quirky melodic shots and subtle percussions.
Review: In recent years, L.A-based Zane "SFV Acid" Reynolds has concentrated on making albums. Here he returns to vinyl for the first time in four years, serving up eight tracks stretched across a 12" and 10". There's much to admire, from the broken techno-meets-Moon B loveliness of "French Deimar", and classic tech-jazz of "Deep", to the spacey ambient experimentalism of "Dickinsdontile", and punchy electro of "Wenegalam". While much of the EP is intergalactic in ethos, he's more than capable of banging it hard, as the intense acid rush of "Extrakrizzbeat" neatly proves.
Review: SFV Acid aka Zane Reynolds has been releasing left of centre electronic music for over a decade on a variety of labels,including BAKK - and ResedaVill provides another fascinating insight into his unique musical perspectives. It starts off with the tweaked acid lines, offbeat funk and mysterious synths of "Lil_heaven(less)", before Reynolds heads into beats-y territory with 'Always (LA hardcrew mix)", which sounds like DJ Shadow on a heavy dose of acid. "405 Mary" sees Reynolds deliver a rickety rhythm and lo-fi electronic melodies, while on "Jasons II", this individualistic producer drops a dreamy, sub-aquatic piece of hip-hop that tailored for home-listening.
