Boomkat Product Review:
Düsseldorf’s Florian Meyer a.k.a. Don’t DJ wraps up a moebius strip of rhythmelodic grooves with brand new label, Sexes, following recent travels for Berceuse Heroique, Emotional Response, and with his Diskant pals.
Authentic Exoticism is a bit of a beauty, arguably his best release yet. Emerging from a backdrop of nattering cicadas to feel out the chiming, fluidly pendulous drum practice of Savanna Siesta he ups the ante with the outstanding polymetric patterning of Savanna Sundown recalling highlights of Xth Reflexion’s workouts on Aught replaced to some dreamy emulation of an African scape.
Southern Shore starts the other side at a tranquil tilt with loose slippery percussive objets synched to a steady ballast while field recordings slosh in the distance and hyaline melodies bob on the current, taking all the time it needs until depositing us at the desert island of Southeast Subterrane, populated choral pan pipes and drowsy bass figures emerging from the jungle.
Colour us enchanted.
