XP-43’s view might be different than ours, but it is compelling enough to jump in this small but adventurous little release called ‘view’.
DOUX infiltrates the air with a serene balance between ambient and drone. It feels a bit like being a wind glider flying on a clear day towards a safe landing.
‘SOUS’ goes for a similar feeling although the choice of sound is very different and instead of gliding down for a safe landing it feels as this track turns us more upwards, closer and higher in the deep blue sky.
With ‘PEUR’ the artist introduces us with a stimulating groove that brings a fresh breeze to the windless afternoon. Not that it contains a windy sound, it’s just cooler in sound. You know a cold glass of liquid, sunglasses, a cigarette hanging from the lips kind of cool..
‘Born’ is a bit like hanging around in some kind of grotto with strange synth sounds bouncing slowly from wall to wall. It’s all a bit Ice cold and with this this strange release comes to its final destination. The end for this quasi review has also come, so that can only mean one thing..
