Boomkat Product Review:
Æ weigh in the 4th and final volume of the labyrinthine, 8 hour ‘NTS Sessions’, parsing the guts of their hard drives for gold and other precious materials dating back to 2011
The duo were initially commissioned to do a DJ residency on NTS, following their show from early 2016, but what transpired is closer in approach and results to a super extended Peel Session, featuring stacks of reworked material along with exclusive new notions generated by their infamous ‘System’ of software patches.
Quite simply, this one is essential for the vinyl pressing of NTS Session closer, ‘All End’, an hour long piece of ambient inception cut over two sides for optimal fidelity and immersion. But that’s not to discount the deeply uncanny, floating megafortress structure of ’Shimripl Casual’ or the ancient sounding futurism of ‘Mirage’, which sounds like an echo of previous or parallel civilisations attempting to dial into our sphere of reality.
