Boomkat Product Review:
N.M.O. are an exceptional, pan-European duo deploying SuperCollider software and stripped-down, roiling drums under the mantra, As Strict As Possible.
For The Death Of Rave they present a unique trio of 'Tropocaliptic Excursions' to follow their two releases for Barcelona's Anòmia label, including 2014's critically acclaimed and standout 12", 'Nederlandse Maatschappij Ontwikkeling'. Like all the other oddbods on The Death Of Rave, N.M.O.'s semi-organic creations occupy a distinct space in the frequency spectrum; all amorphous bottom end thump 'n roll coupled with crunching mids and uncannily bright, pervasive highs.
Between the tension of elastic bass, brittle drums and psychoacoustic gremlins in the title track, thru the bashy grind and torn-metal tones of 'Talkingabouttalking', to the whooping industrial razz-out, 'Zaragoza Variations', they've coined a visceral, effectively unprecedented sound that's hard to ignore. Like their radical, aerobic take on live performance (if u get a chance, go see 'em!) these trax are a playful snub to convention, primed for adventurous DJs and dancers alike.
