Boomkat Product Review:
The latest offering from Kenneth James Gibson at album length sees Orac, the seattle based minimal dancefloor techno label, maintaining a familiar and reliable level of quality. The sounds are all perfectly arranged, some added breaks and vocal clips keeps it lively and there's some maximum minimal variation to the music: horns are juggled, radio receivers twiddled, signature funkadelics throughout. "Your words are necessary" seems to intercept some alien transmissions during the build-up, then shows those self-same aliens some muscular minimal bassline flex, ideal for a good avant-garde house party or some unashamed deep discotheque action. The extremely popular "Saw-saw soup" appears in a radically extended form, sounding just as big as ever it did, harming only a few animals in its making. "Cemento" is the turning point, where the sounds become more driving and less cut up, then comes some gracious levity on Garbanzo Love adding a lumpy coda of distilled loops, like perhaps the Dreck crew on abnormal doses of ritalin. "Beyond speech" smudges the bass, clicks the cut and the whole is a satisfying and entirely useful piece of dancefloor ammunition, which perfectly fits the dynamics of a solid, bumpin album. Ace.
