Boomkat product review for:

bass clef - Reeling Skullways

Bristol-affiliated Hackneyite Bass Clef presents his best album to date - and on Punch Drunk, no less. Following a low-key string of releases including the ace Ekoclef project with Ekoplekz, on 'Reeling Skullways' he adopts a "no samples" policy, using only raw modular synth ingredients to fashion his most involving, sensitive and timeless body of work yet. The lysergic title is lifted from a Brian Aldiss sci-fi novel and neatly reflects its physical/mental, body/machine journey manifested in nine notions of Martian Detroit Techno, psychoactivated Chi-house and cosmic electronic groove. By reducing his production palette to pure modular synth sources, he's allowed space for his own character and emotion to shine through: whether it's in the gracefully evocative melodies of 'Stenaline Metranil Solar Flare', the cheekily destabilized bleeps and hooks of 'Hackney - Chicago - Jupiter' or the intergalactic melancholy of 'Embrace Disaster', his cosmic radiance is both more charming and alluring than ever before. Throughout, we're richly reminded of modern machine soul aces from Lone, Legowelt and Actress, and if that means owt to you; you know what to do!
