DJ ojo is setting a serious high-bar for a debut EP - engrossing and vivid for listening to, yet powerful bass and layered rolling sounds make it effortlessly danceable. Blank Mind on top form rn
Favorite track: Skip top.
The next EP on Blank Mind comes from DJ ojo. His first fully-fledged EP is the result of a mission to find balance between warmth and weirdness, structure and disorder; resulting in dripping, humid tracks with presence and a subtlety that holds sway well beyond the edge of the dancefloor.
From the crisp percussion, and elastikated synths that form ‘Coiled up’ to the furtive corridors of dubby drums and space of ‘Precise device’, there’s a staggering level of detail at work in ojo’s microcosms. Funkiness abounds in the accents on the grooves and the garnishes which quiver in and out, and quite often you’ll hear motifs which call to mind something classic, but rendered wholly new. Take the steppas impressions drizzled into dislocated soundsystem flambé ‘Skip top’ on the B2 - a prime example of how to trigger a dopamine response without repeating someone else’s trick.
Travail de percussions très intéressants, sur ambiances tribales psyché... Par un habitué plutôt porté techno, bah... ces trois titres sont remarquables, ne lassent pas et
donc = Ça se termine trop vite...!!
On en redemande !! EklektikTrip
