Boomkat Product Review:
Jeez - think you know Muslimgauze? Check this incredible album out...
Golden Muslimgauze gear retrieved from the vaults by Staalplaat. This is the strain of Bryn Jones' music that we cherish the most, mixing prickling EBM/electro patterns with lilting percussion, gloaming pads and field recordings, rather than his distorted loop jams.
As we know, he would create umpteen versions of tracks which could sound very similar but we're actually all subtly different arrangements to each other. There are nine takes on the same palette of elements in 'Zilver / Feel The Hiss', including longer parts that really set the ground for Vatican Shadow, interspersed with some choice arabesques like the skeletal electro-stepper 'Zilver Track 3', and a stunning, unanchored dub-scape in 'Zilver Track 9' which effectively preempts the coiled, gutted aesthetics of Total Freedom, Lotic or Arca by a few decades.
