Boomkat Product Review:
Bergsonist wraps up clanking mantras, knackered techno and acid industrial bogle in a heavy debut for Optimo
Leading from her albums, tapes and 12”s with Börft, Where To Now? and Clan Destine, the Brooklynite producer intuitively feels her way thru three slow and cranky dancefloor manoeuvres.
On ’Heat’ she works pendulous arps and playful percussive cadence into a swagger offset by an almost whispered vocal mantra “feel the heat/heat in the dark” and seeping acid lines. ‘Affiliation’ meanwhile feels like a Suburban Knight track on 33-not-45, again with a fine layer of gloomy, munted vox, and ‘Planetary Systems’ digs a murky rut of grubbing acid and Detroit-style night vision pads.
