Boomkat Product Review:
There aren't many electronica labels left in the world these days, from the heady days of the early noughties when there were so many labels you could barely keep track, they have gradually either faded away entirely or switched their attentions to a less overdone form of music. It's nice to see two of the old-guard keeping it real though, Brit label Expanding (run by none other than the man Benge) and Spanish imprint Spa.Rk who come head to head on this lavish picture-disc 10" with three artists from each label battling for easy-listening electronic supremacy. First up I'll deal with the Expanding side which is easily my favourite; Flotel kicks things off nicely with a guitar piece that sounds something like Arovane circa Atol Scrap, but done on guitar if you know what I mean. The hallmarks of IDM are all there but the instrument seems to have changed - a good idea done well for Flotel then. Elsewhere Modern Institute turns in a similarly forward thinking (he incorporates some nice organic sounds) piece of electronic goodness and the side is rounded off by Monoceros, who brings the most retro-sounding piece to the table. Flip over and you're greeted to a quite lovely little piece of acoustic/electronic crossover bliss from .TAPE. (note the dots, these guys are NOT the Swedish Tape) and then some simple, delicate Mercky electronics from Luap and Eedl. The last of a dying breed.
