Boomkat Product Review:
Computer generated genre-splicing from Eugene, Oregon's Karmelloz, back on the excellent 1080p label. Dissolving decoded traces of house, Footwork, ambient techno and instrumental hip hop in nine diffuse, cloud-minded hybrids, 'Source Localization' ties together strands of thought stemming from Karmolloz's background in neuroscience together with progressive ideas about the deconstruction and recombination of disparate musical ideas thru the prism of Max/MSP. The results feel lush, wide-eyed and optimistic, with the pensive, expansive mystery of some epic computer game soundtrack set in a parallel dimension, taking in New Aged ethnocentricity on 'Indian Architecture' alongside the free-floating techno structure of 'Squiggles', airborne hip hop bounce in 'Feature Net', and pastoral footwork simulations on 'Citrus Acid CPU' feat. C Plus Plus.
