Blank Mind celebrates its tenth release with the first full EP from SMX, a collaboration between Sam Purcell and Max O'Brien. From the glacial ambience of Hinterland, to the nocturnal convulsions of Uakari, these improvised tracks were recorded in East London from 2015-18.
"The live sessions allowed us to concentrate on simple forms and subtle developments. This project was started with no preconceived ideas about the end product, but we gravitated towards a sound that works both in a club or home environment. The EP serves as an honest and organic journal of sorts documenting the last few years."
This is a sweet little collection of tunes Tom and Ed. I like the switch between beats and arps (I think that's what they are, I know nothing about making electronic music!). Chilled as Fuck. Carry on. Richard Thomas
