It is hard to highlight any of the tracks from this album, as it is a uniquely amazing experience of auditory pleasure, especially for those who are synth fetishists.
A difficult release to review, and surely each listener will perceive it completely differently, but it will surely provide an abstract aural experience that definitely deserves to be enjoyed and surely remembered for a long time… and space.
Kvitnu is a standout Ukranian label run by Dmytro Fedorenko (Kotra) which started at the end of 2006 with the main purpose of spreading the electronic experimental output from the Ukraine through the support of emerging names in that scene. We chose to review three new EP’s from Kvitnu.
For “Upload Select Remix” Daniel Myer invited some friend projects to make a review of a track from the ravishing “Consume Adapt Create”. Definitely a remix CD appealing to those who already know the original release, or for those who haven’t discovered it yet and are in need of extra motivation.
As a sound research laboratory, it must be recognized that “Memory Gospel” holds a wealth of valuable material, potentially interesting to fans of the genre, as well as to musicians searching for innovative methodologies of sound manipulation in order to create uncommon sound landscapes and thereby enrich their compositions.
At each crossroads you can find the beauty meeting the beast, and pleasant whispers suddenly pierced by incredible roughness. The world enters a new era with so many artefacts within an artefact that itself deserves to be excavated with special care.
This album absolutely deserves not to be forgotten on some ‘too experimental’ music shelf and should be recognized as a solid attempt to add something new to the overpopulated world of contemporary electronic music, adding grace, meaning and warmth to a genre that often misses these aspects.
