Boomkat Product Review:
Regardless of the identity/identities lurking behind the Oni Ayhun moniker, of all the anonymous projects whirling around the Techno and House scenes at the moment his must surely rank as the most original and impressive. The fourth release in his eponymous series is also for our money the best so far, leaving behind those Villalobos comparisons thrown at the first volume and the more regulated dancefloor variations of Part three in favour of an altogether more haphazard and uncontrolled 4/4 variant that quite honestly sounds like nothing else out there right now. "OAR004-A" can best be described as bric-a-brac House, with sharp bursts of noise punctuating the mix, making for a floor burner that sounds like a cross between classic Sahko mixed with Throbbing Gristle and Sleeparchive - just too good. "OAR004-B" meanwhile kicks off with what sounds like a dog sniffing around some Gamelan bells that eventually turns into a tubular 4/4 reduction with just a bassline and a broken wooden snare for company. It sounds like the most demented, stripped and random 4/4 reduction - but produced with so much attention to detail and such confidence that really we're completely blown away. If you're new to this project or just looking for something utterly fresh - investigate immediately.
