Holland’s FAH aka Robin de Bekker enters the scene with this heavy, braindance inspired five tracker.
Opener Fine Space is spooky and upbeat with false melodies fighting the track’s ground level acid bubbles. The second track, Bonus Orbits, starts off as a fast electronic harpsichord cut for a smart dance floor before turning into a hectic swamp of challenging harmonies. Next one up is Sixears: a shorter track holding the middle ground between a moody Elecktroids tune and hectic, Vibert-like acid.
The EP’s title track and centerpiece then, is characterized by rewinds, whistles, haunting melodies and a total lack of repetition; it’s a 9 minute long excursion into the most unreal part of Bekker’s mind. FAH finally says goodbye with an eerie cut that sounds like a humming predator with no food to eat. FAH’s first one for 030303 comes with appropriate, occultist artwork.
I see a grip of EOD tracks, I buy. Simple. One of my fav Rephlex alumni holistically homegrown sound & sequence wizards. A lush lord, a 24 speed frisky gear spinner, a hoot and a holler and a warm bass ‘n breaks breakfast in bed bewildering tapestry of sprites and wingdings. A melted, hot-tip prod into a padded gymnasium fashioned with chutes, ladders and inter dimensional strobe foam pits. And there’s a doorman along the way to provide the obligatory steamed towel and mints. Constant synthesis on a lateral axis
This is my second favorite release from eod; track six is my favorite but I love the album as a whole and symbol series excited for more. Eod captures electronic music in a very compositional manner eclectic tones shaking bones Louis D.
