Euan Dalgarno – Nfutures [MOM027]

EUAN DALGARNO - Nfutures

Euan Dalgarno follows up his debut on Modern Obscure Music with Nfutures. The Scottish producer presents an album that has been inspired by modern-day classical music, but also informed by forward-thinking electronic music. Nfutures builds on Dalgarno’s previous release on the label, but also enters previously uncharted waters. It is an eleven-track album of mainly probing strings and piano-led compositions. Hel is a real standout with its calming keys and taut strings. Earhorns (for 3 Pianos) is an exciting composition, where the stars really are those pianos. The title track, Nfutures, ends proceedings beautifully with an epic piece that features levitating strings, bright-eyed keys and synthetic waves.

Yoshihiro Sawasaki – Neocrystal [MOMA001]

The Amsterdam based Modern Obscure Music label launches a new sub-division named MOMArchives. MOMArchives is a reissue label that will focus on electronic music. The first release is Neocrystal by Japanese producer Yoshihiro Sawasaki. It is a fantastic slice of mid 90s Japanese Ambient Techno that needs to be heard by a larger audience.

Black Meteoric Star – No More White Presidents [MOM011]

Gavin Rayna Russom palms out a loose and wiry jag for Barcelona’s Modern Obscure Music, leaning heavily on a knackered acid bent (and seemingly many of the buttons in her keyboard at once) for the soundtrack to a self-made film about transition in a broader context of capitalism and death.

Pedro Vian – Dancing Hindus EP [MOM001]

Pedro Vian with remixes by Hieroglyphic Being ad the Italian-futuristic Madteo. On side A of the disc we find an original track entitled News From Near Future, which is along techno noisy lines at low revs and full of highly emotionally charged melodies. The second track is the remix by Jamal Moss, head of the American squadron Mathematics Recordings. On the flip side of the disc we discover a monumental reinterpretation by Madteo 15 ‘minutes long.
