Boomkat product review for:

deaf center - Neon City

Three releases into its catalogue, John Xela’s “Type” imprint is fast becoming the perfect platform for new music that is daring, innovative and unspeakably warm. This sublime first release from Norway’s Erik k.Skodvin and Otto A.Totland, is quite simply one of the finest debut’s we’ve had the pleasure of stumbling across in the last few years. Its an entirely unpretentious, whole-hearted, honest foray into classic composition realised through predominantly acoustic instruments gently augmented by electronics and digital reconstruction. There have been a number of breathtaking releases in this mould recently – the gorgeous “Many Fingers” album for the Moteer label, Dictaphone’s ongoing flirtation with re-calibrated smoky jazz traditions for City Centre Offices and Max Richter’s heart-stopping Piano variations “Blue Notebooks” for Fat Cat. “Deaf Centre” touch on elements exposed by all three – but there is a balance between minimal principles and overflowing musicality that makes “Neon City” quite substantially more layered. Its one of those listens that sends you off into a haze of inspiration and catharsis, evoking wonder at how two people have managed to create something so timeless and accomplished for their first ever release. Touched by incredible beauty and charm, “Neon City” comes as highly recommended as they get. Beautiful music.
