Boomkat Product Review:
Intensely intricate avant-house minimalism from Non Standard Productions female representative Margaret Dygas. There are distinct similarities between the work of both NSI and Dygas, from the unblemished soundscapes to the funkily obtuse yet efficient rhythms, it's clearly apparent that they share a common aesthetic. The hi-end production values of 'See You Around' are shockingly well accomplished, creating an electro-acoustic listening space in which truncated elements of various stringed and percussive instruments are (wo)manhandled with a deft touch to create almost arrhythmic patterns over a steady pulse of elastic bass, but retaining enough funk and direction to confuse dancers into movement. If that's too abstract for you then '37 Min To 7' should correct the funk balance with an advanced tech house rhythm to get your bones flexing. Placed inside a vast acoustic space with stunning reverb treatments, this is the cutting edge of minimalist dancefloor production with a more stoic approach than Villalobos, but a tidier and more intimate feel than NSI. Highly sophisticated.
