Boomkat Product Review:
On his 1st release of 2015, American minimalist Neil Reinalda a.k.a. Phork explores an idiosyncratic paradox of lush electronic intent and ascetic production values in 'Disappear in Raveland'.
Marking a subtle step on in terms of sound design, his "ode to ritual and the language of dance music" can be heard as a study in reducing footwork, ballroom and techno to their dynamic essence, much in the same way that Mark Fell's Sensate Focus output distilled his love of deep house with an appreciation of footwork and garage at obliquely funky junctures.
As previously shown on his aces for Opal Tapes and NNA Tapes, PHORK's production is still stringently lucid and crisp with a clear experimental bent at the service of the 'floor, resulting that uncanniest of effects where you're re-programming muscle-memories and sense of proprioception in real-time as you attempt to synch with his hyper-natural patterns and synthetic contours.
With a pendulous sense of timing also recalling Ilpo Väsänen's Liima or Piiri output, he traverses six tracks taking in the airlock compressions of 'Invocation / Pain Is Leaving' plus the bumpty house polymetrics of 'Holy Ghosting' and what sounds like Sleeparchive gone footwork in 'We All Make Out (A Living)', whilst the flipside errs heavier toward footwork abstraction with the intra-dimensional flux of 'Tear Up' flowing into the spectral reggaeton of 'Boring Pool Party Bouncer' and the strobing rush of 'Talk Don't Turnt' to close.
