amazing micro and minimalistic house jazz album. be fast on this one. a full-length album by ohm hourani that travels long the didactic path of modular synthesizers and drum machines, while in the company of carefully hand-picked musicians and vocalists. this seven-track lp delves into the unpredictability of two musical worlds: electronic and jazz. beginning with the intricate composition of the cheerful >oasis in heaven< and moving on to discover the mysteries hidden in >the bicycle tour<, the first record twists and turns into the challenging narrative of >bahe<, before saying its final few words of goodbye to >abusamir.< on the second record, >coucou< sits to script the love of life or the love of a lifetime. >happy mutek< fortifies energy new and old and escorts us to moments of alleviation. the eponymous >jazz of the machine< is the flag-bearer and ultimate demonstration of the bond between air and its reliance on the electricity of soul and souls. encasing this double record is a sleeve that features a luscious illustration by laucolo entitled >batikha.<

ukraine’s minimal hypnotist silat beksi now prepares to make his signature mark on his label modeight with the aptly titled “on my own” ep. this is his first solo contribution to the label, having initially christened its opening with the heady, breakbeat infused stylings of the “inception” ep. the result of a collaborative effort alongside heidelberg producer durrrred. modeight’s discography already boasts a roster of producers who are pushing boundaries in the minimal field, with romania’s rqz and dragutesku, germany’s durrrred and “methylat” duo virkut & amin ravelle’s combined output constituting a powerful sonic statement for modeight. silat himself continues to delve deep into his extensive musical influences, showing no signs of slowing his creative output as the talent prepares to release more music on welsh imprint curtea veche and milan label hashplant. this ep sees silat in his element as he laces nuanced rhythms on top of funky bassline riffs and hazy electronic artefacts, cementing himself once again as a unique and characteristically engaging artist.
