The second track of a 3-part ambient EP.
Greetings, dear readers. Discogkahvi soldiers on with the second third of the twenty-ninth Kahvi Collective release, the debut ep by Bad Loop, from South Africa. Download here, or click the YouTube below. This whole EP’s been looping on my iPod since, iunno, my last Discogkahvi post. This next track fits in well with the first one, having a certain playfulness to it.
A calliope plays inside of smoke so thick it’s soup. A pensive sound cavorts inside of this sonic hookah. Some IDM-genre-codifying mumbling round the 54 second mark, riding the rim of a drop. The track continues to skirt this rim, suspicious warbles, still in a haze of almost-Wendy-Carlos sound. An artifact with 2:40 to go – is it intentional? A drum-break at 2:44, more mumbles, sawtooth stripes in the foggy texture of this sound. I could imagine a caterpillar. 3:30 and the pensive sound and companion warble are back. Smoky fun persists, until a filter clears the air… or did we asphyxiate?
