Boomkat Product Review:
Morphine present a very welcome, if unexpected, return from Sote, an American-based Iranian artist who delivered one of Warp's most interesting releases of the '00s with 'Electric Deaf'. We've spoken previously about our fascination with hi-end Middle Eastern electronics and Sote would fall well in that category with these complex, super-dynamic projections gleaned from a range of synthesis techniques. We won't bore you with the finer details - google it if you're bothered - but can tell you there's some dazzling work here; a hyperkinetic rush of trance-inducing tones and completely unstable, chaotic rhythms woven with supreme guile, intricacy and attention to detailed frequencies that flood the senses. The time is so right for this release, leaving all the modular meddlers and academic bores for dust. RIYL, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Dariush Dolat Shahi, Pouya Ehsaei, Xenakis.
