A Record

Out of Stock

Full long-player from the brutalist rhythm explorer Sofheso.

Juggernaut rhythms, frenzied vocal samples, machinegun drum programming greets us from track a.1 / ECSS, and the pressure is maintained for almost the entire record. Major bludgeoning damage is dealt on a.4 / ONJJ particularly, as chunks of subby utterance boil over into a nimble breakbeat. Moments of melodic release are spoon fed through the cracks & become euphoric - like a nourishing sip of something offered in the smoke of a 5am dancefloor.

Across 53 minutes barely 4 bars are the same - always an unseen path is taken into a fresh rhythmic possibility. Sometimes it’s abrasive & chaotic. But our seasoned technician always finds the right addition or subtraction to make sense of the tumult, and discovers new levels of blown out/up POWER where others would be timidly reaching for the gain pot.

Sofheso has been sharpening his tools since 2002 - the year of his first performance under this moniker - and it’s apparent from his new recordings and his euphoric live shows that he wields them with a rare & unconstrained intuition.
