GOLDEN TEACHER / DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THAT GOOD NIGHT / OPTIMO

Test Pressing, Reviews, Promo`d, Dr Rob, Golden Teacher, Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night, Optimo, JD Twitch

If “Bells From The Deep End” contained some synth Psyche freakouts, then its follow up is really four, stripped back, drum improvisations.

African Head Charge`s “Stebeni`s Theme” gets ridden by MC Kinky. Simple percussion and chants in reverb evolve into the Acid House of Brooklyn Bobby Konders` “Massai Women”, with the rhythm fixed at a militant steppers. A Cosmic wind blows. Inna marimba. 8 Up cover Yusef Lateef`s “Before Dawn”, after being up all night listening to Lula Cortes` & Ze Ramalho`s “Paebiru”. Detuned toms collapse. Man Parrish plays Nyahbingi. Underground Resistance. Djax-Up-Beats. The Psychick Warriors Ov Gaia live. A haunted Gamlean on Nonesuch shellac. A Robert E. Brown or David Lewiston field recording. The true root of Techno.

More ghosts in a different bush.
