Boomkat Product Review:
More vivid out-mode dancefloor experimentation from NYC's Bergsonist. "خ" takes techno into richly percussive, anxious zones and feels delightfully unmoored. Check!
Released in 2019, "خ" is more evidence that Bergsonist is one of NYC's most consistently reliable outsiders. Opener 'Ketones' is the most upfront, with echoing woodblock percussion humming over a beating 4/4 backbone, but it's 'Social Anxiety' that does it for us. Resonant hand drums dodge and weave between pounding kicks, almost singing and creating melodies that sound almost illusory. Good stuff.
