A few months after the landing of 'Point A', the debut instalment in a series of 12-inch VAs blending in works from new faces and more established names, On Board Music returns this winter with 'Point B' - a followup featuring choice slices from on-the-rise French soundscaper Diane Barbé, Madrid-based dub experimentalists Uanamani and well-known Spanish techno artist Daniel Kyo under his CORE alias.
Starting off with Diane Barbé's 'Something For The Mountains' - an eight minute piece of textural sublimation fusing strains of Easternmost traditional music and heart-raking downtempo, the disc moves on towards further dynamic, verbed-out atmospherics with Uanamani's 'Luzzu' - taking us straight to some eerily exotic place, where delayed drums and teeming layers of faux-organic luxuriance make one.
Flip sides and you'll find CORE setting the deepness'o’metre to eleven with a pair of dubbed-out rollers. Cutting a path of hypnotic devastation across the dancefloor, 'Mantra' loops you in for a truly mind-bending trip down techno's deepest depths. Beaming back the energy levels stacked up by the previous, hectic closer 'Energia' spits out fiery waves of mesmeric synth arpeggios to ensure definitive control upon the dancers' body and mind.
