Angel 1 – FyPosted: November 10, 2014
While most anti-genre explorers currently seem to be going in the direction of super-clear fractured sounds, Angel 1 appears to be doing exactly the opposite by turning to hazy, fuzzy drones and gneneral lo-fi, tape hiss drenched aesthetics. And it works. It’s kinda like Hype Williams duo that have smoked themselves to oblivion and lost all track of time and being barely able to function, they stretched their rough drafts into infinity, turning them into some amorphous, gently floating & bubbling bastard child of early Popol Vuh and other German oozing synthedelia. Sometimes a mutated beat emerges from the softened kosmische soup, creating some ripples. But this is mostly a swamp.
