Boundary Monument – Olin – TPI – BOM 02


BOM02_ABOM02_B



Chicago DJ and producer Olin follows up the debut release on his new record label, Boundary Movement, with TPI featuring four diverse cuts. Up-tempo electro, moody minimalism, old-school melodies, and chugging deep house all woven seamlessly.
The A side begins with “TPI,” an exercise in minimalism and micro-detail. Unmistakably Olin’s own, insistent synth stabs keep time while needlepoint percussion keeps the ear guessing. If you thought Olin’s palette was limited to techno and house, A2 “Corsaren” will prove you wrong — this is pitch-perfect electro in a classic style, a slow-building interplay of sci-fi synthesizers wrapped around icy cool call-and-response kicks and handclaps.
B1 “Thanks Rob” is BOM02’s most straightforward cut — and one of its best. Building momentum slowly across its eight-minute runtime, “Thanks Rob” impresses as the larger-than-life bass swell hits. The dancefloor will be rapt – proceed carefully. B2 “Hyssop,” feeling like it comes from a similar vintage as “Corsaren,” might have been called “ambient techno” decades ago, but its upwardly mobile percussion makes it feel as at home in a club as it does in the chill-out room. It’s just the thing to close out this broad-spectrum record.

2017 marks 10 years of LMD and we are very excited to welcome one of Chicago’s finest and one of electronic music’s most singular visionary artists to the family: Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being! Having recently dropped a exceptional album for Ninja Tune and a stunning 12″ for Rush Hour, Jamal now teams up with “The Truth Theory Trio” to deliver the “Materialized Psychism Of The Bottomless Void” EP.
“Long Night Of Iboga” opens the EP and sees Jamal & The Trio create a DJ focused cut with unpredictable drum patterns, abstract melodies and psychedelic horns. A killer weapon for any seasoned selector.
“Mystery Of The Changelings” is a mesmerizing 11 minute odyssey through magical harps, melancholic synths, and a piano riff that will stay with you long after listening.
Truly music for the mind, body & soul. Praise be to The Sun God!
