Boomkat Product Review:
Baron Mordant is at the helm for the latest Mordant Music release, providing another uncategorisable installment for the eccentric imprint. The label, and the Baron in particular have segregated a whole genre for themselves, roughly fitting in with the whole Hauntological aesthetic, but creating an alchemical blend of post-rave electronics that sits in a field all of it's own creation. These are the sounds released from his mind, blending FX swamped synthlines and dancefloor-suspicious rhythms with his own vocals to leave us clutching at straws for any analogical comparisons. In his own words "...this albuMM taps into the verbal hinterland of deranged solo sessions prised from Cable Hut in Abermawr, an injured hotel room in Bali & the skewed Wood Green triangulation...", leaving us even more baffled than we were when we finished listening to it. We can safely say however, that this is one of those typically English records with a considered sense of melody and measured feel for metre and rhythm personified by the likes of Scritti Politti's Green Gartside or the label's own Shackleton, but sounds nothing like neither of them, really. Check the samples and baffle yourself - Essential Wares.
