About this item

Albrecht La'Brooy's Analogue Attic imprint say hello to summer with a solo project from one half of the duo, Alex Albrecht, under his newly formed Melquiades guise...
The past couple of years have seen Albrecht La'Brooy steadily hone their unique spin on the ambient end of the house and techno landscape via self-released gems & acclaimed projects on Night Tide, Voyage Records and Butter Sessions, culminating with the release of their debut long player 'Tidal River' on R&S offshoot Apollo earlier this year. This solo material from Alex's new alias combines the textured shimmer of ambient with a rhythmic approach which should add some atmosphere to your standard club set. The material recorded live, retaining an improvised feel and managing to capture the surreal and mysterious atmosphere of the Australian bush. Combining atmospheric field recordings, Jazz tinged double bass-licks and bright piano elements, all woven together with the label's trademark intricately programmed rhythms, the "Bluff EP" is an engaging, mesmerising and addictive addition to the label's already well-loved output...

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Whether he's shimmying through broken beats and jazzy house or drifting through forth world mysticism, Alex Albrecht keeps the quality high and the content original with this solo debut.
