Sonic Week 10.22: Creative Percussion
Acid Pauli plucks dry the sound of distant South American samples, morphing hollow tribal beats into tender, complex, oscillating layers. Henrik Schwarz continues with vocal zipper melodies, remodeling these once childish play noises into calculated, persistent additions to a speeding thematic crescendo. Glory to wobbling additive meters, building its techno pleasure points tenfold. Ta-ku explores choppy beats and glitchy remnants of a hip hop symphony- “Hey Justin” is fabulously weird and unique.
The next two tracks throw back to longtime Dutch hip hop collaborators MC Pete Philly and Perquisite. Always soulful and smooth and matched in canalside heaven. Finally, a sexy Mello Music Group star, The Black Opera.
