"Glistening reverb is the rule…"
Greetings, dear readers. Discogkahvi comes back after a little break to cover a 2-song EP released by Blamstrain (is that pronounced “blams-train” or “blam-strain”?), who treated us previously to Kahvi release 034, called Linja. Recommended listening, if you haven’t heard it already. This new affair, an EP called “Goodbye p10/hello a16″, has got some beautiful, resonating ambience. Download here or YouTube below:
Glistening reverb is the rule, as the flipside tune, but the similarity between them ends at thirty, where a terse bassline kisses us off. 56 seconds sees some pitchy percussion, some rythmic pounding later. A wet warble plays in and around, becoming more expressive in the 2nd minute. A nice drum windup at 2:20, and the mini-single’s charateristic walls of reverb continue to stand in the distance. Past the third minute, a sample I swear I’ve heard in other Kahvi Collective works insinuates itself, slowly growing in intensity until breaking at 5:10, disappearing before the spotsound (kinda like a spotlight) focuses on the aforementioned terse bass, who escorts the track out on an artfully stacatto-panned fade.
