Boomkat Product Review:
Moscow’s Ol draws a warm, multi-dimensional ambient bath for L.A.’s Motion Ward following from their ace 12”s by uon and Ultrafog
Over the course of seven parts ‘Dismeteo’ maintains a silty, suspended flux between spectral ambient and dub-hollowed rhythm structures that push the skeletal designs of his recent EP for Gost Zvuk into more smudged, amorphous shapes.
Up top he glydes from burnished ambient dub in ‘Purant Chaos Voices’ into the gloomily physical emulation of new age alien sound ecologies in ‘Realm’, and a billowing dub-stepper named ‘Morph 21’. On the flip he swivels the underwater drums of ‘Mt Sonix’ in fathomless layers of subbass, and the keeling heft of ‘Hive Mind’ leads into a sort of splayed, seasick 2-step dub somewhere between Jay Glass Dubs and Pendant to leave you satisfyingly reeling but likely wanting to do it again.
