Multicast Dynamics – Ancient Circuits [AI-17]

Multicast Dynamics returns with a sixth studio album that marks something of a new chapter. Ancient Circuits is an advancement from previous works on Denovali and one that stands the project aside as a powerful electronic act that tells stories while also serving up heavy hitting soundscapes that are persuasive, unexpected and disturbing. Each of the four 25-minute pieces of Ancient Circuits are clearly demarcated yet sequential sci-fi stories that introduce new characters and are drawn out of long and complex studio experiments. They are collages of sound that glimmer, disturb, shine, dive deep and explore new realms and make for ambient so arresting that it pulls you deep inside. Once again here, Multicast Dynamics draws together cinematic sound design and conceptual intergalactic fiction to come up with a work that is a multi-sensory exploration that puts you as the central character in an expressive musical world.

Move D & Benjamin Brunn – Let’s Call It A Day [SMALLVILLELP13]

Smallville Records reissues Move D (David Moufang) and Benjamin Brunn’s 2006 collaborative album, “Let’s Call It A Day” released on BineMusic. This is a complete piece built from seven sections, each one is a microcosm of unique textures, depth, ambience, emotions, programming, looping and melodic rules; Together they are a homogenous creation, a symphony that culminate in dance music experiencing elevation. The way Moufang and Brunn fuse different genres together without committing to any musical doctrine, makes them appear prophetic. However, it is in no sense a retrospect feeling; even at the time it was clear that the perceptions, experience, vision, and delicacy of this album were outstanding.

Psyk – Opal Lake [NON040]

Spanish DJ and producer Psyk returns to his own NON Series with ‘Opal Lake’. This 40th release on the imprint and also the first release of 2020 is a stellar four track techno pack including a collaboration with fellow Spanish producer Architectural. Opening track ‘Biting Nails’ sees a new studio collaboration between the two Spanish techno legends. It’s a deep and emotive jam showing a surprisingly melodic side of both producers. Title track ‘Opal Lakes’ is the most powerful outing on the EP, fierce and driving rhythms melting into hazy atmospheres. With its crispy snares ‘Bell Tair’ flips the energy with an on-point minimalistic percussion workout where ‘Outline’ and its deep drums acidic riffs drags you below see level into a bright and lively underwater world.
