Emuul – Big Clouds (Digitalis)
Seriously one of the best synthed drone records this year. Full of amazing euphoric sounds from one of the most underrated dudes in the house. Sequenced dreams and meditative bliss, almost lethal in its beauty. Tracks that bleed melancholia, a Disintegration Loop in reverse, or rather a Disintegration Loop that doesn’t disintegrate. Blurred & blown out drones that breathe heavy, swaying in the breeze, scorched at the edges. The optimistic moments immediately proceeding heartache, heavy gray clouds ready to weep at any moment. Looped for an eternity, dynamics thrown out the window, everything zen. 5 increasingly longer segments, culminating in a 20+ minute piece of unadulterated electronic perfection.
