Boomkat Product Review:
Bioni Samp makes his solo debut proper with a finely structured, dark and elemental Ambient Techno EP. Hailing from Leeds, he's already appeared on the London-based Aconito label alongside Nax_Acid with the 'Ghost Bus' EP, but this is his definitive solo statement. Stark ambient pieces bookend four minimal Techno rollers. 'Feather Ings' uses field recordings and plunging subaquatic basses reminiscent of Thomas Köner, and the title track sketches bleak atmospheres around a skeletal hi-hat pattern reminding of DJ Skirt at her most isolated. The Techno tracks are equally carefully constructed, from the rippling, offset roll of 'Todays Skyline' to the SAW-like pulses of 'Oil On Canvas' and the ghostly warehouse space of 'Slinky Makes Reverb'.
