Boomkat Product Review:
Good Morning Tapes with a new haul of exclusive gemstones from friends and family far and wide, including new music from HTRK’s Jonnine, Full Circle, Gi Gi, Rezzet’s Tapes, E Ruscha V, Kiki Kudo, Shakali and more.
The 4th volume of GMT’s global almanac speaks to the diversity of their bonds with the ambient and downbeat rhizome. Quite naturally, the big draw for us here is Jonnine, whose ‘I Won't Lift Another Finger’ once again transcends its surroundings, this time on an instrumental tip that sounds something like a drowsy Vini Reilly playing electric bass and wind-chimes.
Tapes, aka Jackson Bailey, aka one half of Rezzet, also does his thing in typically memorable style, his ‘Indigo Tide’ managing to sound like an inversion of Mr Fingers ‘Can You Feel It’ x something lifted off RDJ’s ‘Analogue Bubblebath, while Kiki Kudo features with Haruka Hirata in tow for the spongiform ambient club sway of ‘Hzaruigara’ and E Ruscha V gives it slow mo Acid, Pye Corner Audio style, for his ‘Memory Leap’.
Finally. Alexis Le Tan & Joakim’s slow trance duo Full Circle get it right with the pendulous Goa-learic satellite ‘A Definition of What’, and Gi Gi dial up the ‘90s breeziness on ‘Opioid Rev’, giving us blissed flashbacks to a diff, better time.
