Hey, uhhhhhh… oh, right, welcome to another music review, this time for a single released almost a decade ago on my old label, Noise-Joy!
‘Primo Ilich’ starts off sounding like we’re being launched away on a rocket. The tempo is kept by some clicking, and there is a diverse range of peculiar synthetic sounds reverberating out into the mix, an electro pop, some steel percussion coming in… the groove begins to develop slightly, with some strange rhythmic shuffling of keys into an ignition. A bit of a hollow digital thump, more movement now. As it goes, the field of sound begins to feel like liquid to me; melting, plasticine rhythms, a bit of a vocal sound, squelchy ufo blasts, all in a pot being stirred around with chemical dyes. It’s a really abstract dance track!
Naturally, if you wish to hear this, the link will transport you there… like a camel… or a boat. A boat with a camel on it, ferrying you across a river, and then dumping you off into a desert that you must traverse for several miles to reach your destination… all at the push of a button! It’s amazing.
