Rolando Simmons “Summer Diary Two” (Analogical Force)

2020-05-21T20:50:33+00:00May 21st, 2020|

Second part in the Rolando Simmons summer excursions series (you may remember AF019.1, 2018). The swedish is back to Analogical Force in dark days to light the way. Playful modern electronics with enough melody and invention to stimulate your cortex and an almost whistful nostalgic yearning. Hope! fire is burning, flag is flying.

Dwaallicht “Welkin” (Analogical Force)

2019-10-31T23:40:24+00:00October 31st, 2019|

Just when the 10th anniversary of the still acclaimed ‘NRTHNDR’ album on now-defunct Sublight label, and six years after ‘We Miss You’ and ‘The Shimmering Hour’ on the Rephlex camp, the Aphex Twin-approved producer is back exploring spectral acidish territories, intricate drum patterns with thick synths, nervous breaks and rhythms, nostalgic rising-falling melodies…waving this elements to his will. It seems that Reid has deemed the time right to do what he does best. A record so immune to contemporary styles and aesthetics are almost by definition timeless, and it’s tempting to call ‘Welkin EP’ that. Dwaallicht doesn’t hide his influences; AFX, Squarepusher and Mike Paradinas are obvious reference points, but add Tangerine Dream, Phuture 303 or Mr Fingers to the mix and you’ll get a sense of the scope of Reid’s personal vision. Braindancers: ‘Welkin EP’ will all remind you exactly why you loved this talented guy for so long and why hes one of the most uncompromising artists working in electronic music this days. Limited to 400 handnumbered copies. Absolutely essential!
