Boomkat Product Review:
Ekoplekz knuckles out a suite of dancehall cranks for Seagrave - his first release proper since 2017
“With releases on Mike Paradinas' Planet Mu label and Seattle-based Further Records amongst others, Nick Edwards' Ekoplekz project remains an insistent and inspirational force. As motorik and surging as it is by turns fragile and melancholy, the Ekoplekz sound shuffles and thumps, stutters and collides as much as it breezes and glides across a diverse range of imaginary terrains.
This collection of previously unreleased studio fragments (or 'shrapnel' as Nick himself described the tracks) are assembled here under the notion of 'Kirlian Visionz', or Nick's figurative take on auric photography. Whether or not the notion of auras and their utility to medical research proves absurd or bogus, this curious symptom of cold-war science suggests an evocative album title, lending an affective backdrop to the specific yet unrelated intuitions that originally inspired the tracks.”
