About this item
On this killer 12" from the Fleeting Wax camp, we get a duo of percussive electronic workouts, nicely sandwiching the San Proper remix on the a-side. Blumareciano kicks things off with a staggered aquatic arpeggio, slowly morphing into the grounding for the insistent percussion and sidechained ambience, whilst the San Proper remix takes this percussion and puts it to work providing a reverbed backbone to the scattered vocal snippets and phased hi-hats, lending a much more driven air to the previously dreamlike iteration.
'Begum' hinges on a much more palpable bassy backline, where Kreidler-esque trebly bass rolls meet headfirst withsyncopated snapping snare echoes and rainforest toms strobing through the stereo field. Killer hypnotic synthwork.
Barry says: Percussive but relenting, this is a superbly balanced and impeccably produced slice of neo-gothic electronics and shadowy cosmic melodies. Brilliant.
