Boomkat Product Review:
Anders Ilar really beginning to power up now, after a brace of twelves for Narita, and with further extended work due for them and Plong! in turn, there seems to be a bottomless supply of minimal goods issuing from this guy right now. Emerging as if from out of the woods in Dusseldorf comes this highly original take on the fourfour obstacle course. "Existing in the dreams of a flower" opens in splendid style, deep river melodies flowing over a more than powerful bass drums configuration, this fairly tugs away at the ears, but retains a certain reserve throughout, allowing the large bottom end to do all the work. "Can't force a tree to grow" welds a seismic boogie bass and a sizeable amount of swing to some minutely accurate percussion. The title cut swells with memory of dub, and still that grooving bassline element carries proceedings, "Lakeside" confirms what we knew all along - cool twelve - and what we suspected too - minimal music can still be funky.
