Boomkat Product Review:
Sam Prekop follows last year's Longform-released "Spelling" with another protracted but soft-centered modular composition. Quite lovely - one for ISAN fans.
While its predecessor was a gossamer, near ambient improvisation, Prekop is preoccupied with rhythm on "Saturday Sunday", letting step sequenced riffs guide his sparkling synth tones thru a zone that feels equally as influenced by early Morr Music records as it does the 1970s kosmische canon.
There's a hint of ISAN's calming synth-led cuteness in the track's early moments, before it fades in Vangelis-style pads to hit a more widescreen stride, dimming into FM wonkiness in the middle section. Then Prekop develops the rhythmic backbone further, fleshing out his evolving track with bubbling staccato synth notes and heaving LFOs. Before the track fizzles out, a low-end marching rhythm almost hints at a kick drum 4/4 that never comes - it's so close to being techno, but never quite takes the bait.
Good stuff yet again from Prekop.
