Boomkat Product Review:
**2LP in gatefold sleeve** Parisian Afro-futurist Bambounou projects a mystic, dystopian premonition of things to come with 2nd album, 'Centrum' for Modeselektor's label. Inspired by the sci-fi predictions of Akira and Dune, and operating in aesthetic orbit of Jeff Mills, Jamal Moss and Untold, we find ten tracks unfolding a cracked narrative of night vision synths and scuffed, semi-organic rhythms that seem to have a micro-life of their own. It works very neatly as a play-through listen, twysting between frayed, Afro-centric shuffle and Detroit-style electronics in 'Composer' and the polychromatic Mills arrangement of 'Fire Woman' to lithe techno trax such as 'Excluding Natalia' and 'Each Other' reminding of Terrence Dixon's Reduction releases. The roiling, frictional percussion of 'Oez' and 'And The Mirror' could be easily filed alongside your Bruce or Untold deviations, but best of all are those uniquely esoteric aerobic mystic moments, '0 to 1' or 'S.A.C.' which couldn't really be attributed to anyone but Bambounou.
