Boomkat Product Review:
Studio alchemists George Thompson (Black Merlin) and Gordon Pohl (Kunstkopf, 3rd Wave) uncoil a blinding 2nd album as Karamika on debut for Vladimir Ivkovic’s Offen Music
Masters of making the least say the most, Karamika rejoin at cosmic junctures of slow techno and industrial ambient, skirting black holes of electronic darkness and sliding down time-warping wormholes to scenes populated with sublime sirens.
Arriving four years since the 1st Karamika LP on ESP Institute, ‘2.0’ feels equally dazed and etheric, like the work of inhabitants on a shuttle travelling light years from earth, for whom time has become a relative concept compared to their dying species back on earth. Drawn into their space and pace, we find unnamed voices revolving like obsessive memories in a lonely head on the pulsing reiterations of ‘Ton 2.1’ before slipping into Global Communication-esque celestial isolation on ‘Ton 2.2’, whilst slugging mechanical rhythms chart a path towards the quietly breathtaking sublime of ‘Ton 2.5’, and what sounds like Teresa Winter singing from beyond our solar system in the utterly unmissable highlight of ‘2.6’. A rolling piece of Pye Corner Audio 0-esque techno and an ultimate collapse into derelict space station ambience seal the deal - this is a killer album.
