Boomkat Product Review:
The sickest, most unexpected turn from Good Morning Tapes, here providing an hour of utterly tripped out, psychedelic and heady dark ambient, concrète, spoken word and reel-to-reel techno from the mind of Nina, one half of the V I S label and veteran behind mixes for The Trilogy Tapes, Blackest Ever Black’s cult Krokodilo and Id Mud labels plus A Colourful Storm and Paralaxe Editions.
It’s all mulched, dank ambience, intoxicating and diffuse atmospheres, distinctly recalling the enigma of fellow, cult Hamburg figure Uli rehberg and his Walter Ulbricht Schallfolien types like Werkbund, operating in line with its own fuzzy logic, all at the service of giving the most unheimlich feels for anyone who thinks they’ve heard it all before.
The A-side gives it full trip weirdness, climaxing on a sort of cascading sinewave orgy, while the flip goes from radiophonic clockworking to the sound of horses trotting (we’ve got a thing for horses trotting on mixtapes - biggup) to what sounds like Jeff Mills on one of his space excursions as played back on a rotting spool. Yeah you know the kinda thing - except you’ve prob never heard it quite like this.
If you like it deep and uncanny, this one’s just about as good as it gets.
