Stephen Lopkin / Donarra
12" Vinyl UK
4 sublime electronic cuts from Bokhari mainstay Stephen Lopkin and label newcomer Donnara spanning Techno, Electro and Ambient.
As always Lopkin is 100% on point with his opener, the Detroit influenced, tom driven, driving techno banger 'McStay The Maestro'.
Minimal piece 'Ignorance and Want' follows...a dark swirling adventure through the sonic spectrum with a heavy a rolling bassline at the foundation, plus rolling sub, and white noise blips.
On the flip, we are honoured to welcome Donarra to the Bokhari stable with two beautifully crafted cuts.
'Frequences Test' is a is a low flying electro outing a la vintage Drexciya with a dark cinematic feel, conjuring up visions of gliding through an empty dystopian future city landscape on a planet far from home.
Donnara closes the EP with his beautiful and delicate ambient composition Юлия. A light rain falls as the arpeggiated marimbas creep in and the subtle strings float above caressing the ears, relaxing the mind. [info sheet from distr.]
