Boomkat Product Review:
Kassem Mosse’s Ominira label trek farther out to meet Mix Mup (the MM to KM) a.k.a. Molto’s miniature sound sculptures and soundtrack-like cues in Versatile Service International, arguably the label’s most charming issue to date.
In a similar vein to Rupert Clervaux and Beatrice Dillon’s excellent Studies… LP, the focus here seems to be placed on haptic deftness and vignette-like track lengths, for the most, with a couple of gorgeous, longer tracks to boot - although, to be fair, we’re left blind to the process behind their creation.
The A-side starts up sounding like one of Carl Craig and Derrick May’s Relics intervals before spinning thru chiming bell patter, alien synth voices, pockets of noirish ambience and cyber-tribal ritual pieces.
Meanwhile, the other side takes in a frayed, nine minute bleep dub scape titled Flexible Säulen before vacillating odd choral synth voices with extra-terrestrial field recordings and plonging proto-techno styles.
File next to your favourite oddities from Dead-Cert Ents or your imaginary future Folkways pile.
