About this item

“In a recent interview David Toop described the studio to be “a concept of the mind, a place where you can create other worlds”. The very same perceptual methodology appears be at the heart of the studio processes of Deep Nalström whose latest EP offers a sonic cornucopia overflowing with food for the mind perfect for the journey into outer space via your own inner space.

Opener ‘Low Gravity Ride’ sets you away atop a propulsive fizz of acid bubbles, lustrous synth wash and a lithe percussive groove. Listeners are pleasantly bumped at the mid-point by ‘Astral Variations’- a mid-tempo vacuum jacker reinforced with a fractalised p-funk bassline. A personal highlight is ‘Rainbow Gardens’ - akin to sitting in the exotic grounds of an alien temple in the midst of an afro-cosmic drum circle whilst being laced with extravagant strokes of emotive synth cream.

The tempo increases towards the end of the EP, a rush to oblivion that ends with ‘Underworld Jaunt’ – glorious arcs of arpeggio riding freely above a determined techno canter that gradually peels away as you reach your mind’s eye.

In turbulent times, it’s comforting to commune with the esoteric fantasies of Deep Nalström; richly detailed and beautifully described sonic renderings of a world conceived in his mind and reimagined in yours.”
