Boomkat Product Review:
Inimitable drums + computer duo N.M.O. brilliantly mess with the quantum dynamics of techno, footwork and avant-dance music for Turin’s nutty Gang Of Ducks. Sporting their deviant brand of “Fluxus Techno”, on ‘Nuova Musica Ostinata’ N.M.O.’s Rubén Patiño (Computer) and Morton J. Olsen (Drums) explore, in their own words; “superimpositions of patterns at 160 bpm and 128 bpm at the same time” across a trio of exceptionally deranged and rave-inciting workouts.
Bound to baffle certain DJs and dancers, and open up up wild routes of possibility for others, the 3 tracks aim to short-circuit the metric restrictions of dance music by finding new routes between different tempos. Finding a conceptual relative in Cam Deas’ recent wonder ‘Mechanosphere’ or indeed Lorenzo Senni’s ’Superimpositions’, N.M.O.’s efforts are equally canny but also a lot funkier.
On the A-side they come close to Jlin’s thrilling grasp of polymetrics with the diffractive mix of mentasms, screaming diva samples and hot coal-stepping drumfunk in ‘La music inizia quango la ascot o quango la fai?’ set to turn dancefloors inside out - while the B-side keeps it tight but exceptionally mental with the tumpin’ shot of ‘Rigatoni’, which sounds like EVOL jamming with Vic Berger (the master of in/appropriate air horn use) and a sozzled but up-for-it military band, while ‘Non me è piaciuto’ really gives your body something to calculate with a swingeing syncopation of stuttering snares/kicks and psychotomimetic electronic abstraction.
