Boomkat Product Review:
France’s M.A Beat! transform Laraaji’s Ocean Flow Zither into a multi-segmented complex of combustible shoegaze distortion, psychedelic electronics and strobing post techno flows. Imagine The Field clashing Black Zone Myth Chant.
"All Saints Records presents another remix from Laraaji’s most recent album ‘Bring On The Sun’, this time courtesy of french electronic trio M.A Beat! who have remixed ‘Ocean Flow Zither’. Having previously been given the remix treatment by LA based spiritual beat-maker ‘Ras G’, pioneers of the Nautilogical Cosmos ‘Seahawks’, and self proclaimed ‘blissmaker’ and co-founder of Leaving Records ‘Matthewdavid’, Laraaji’s influence is clearly far reaching, and inspires varied interpretations. In this remix, M.A Beat! highlight their favourite of Laraaji’s instruments, the zither, and add their usual setup of jazz drums, MPC, vintage synthesizers and sequencers. The group previously collaborated with Laraaji on the song ‘Brain Off’, from their recently released album ‘Sans Soleil’, and the musical connection between artists is evident, resulting in a work which honours the variety of musical worlds from which the artists draw influence.”
