Exael & Arad Acid – Furi
Another volley of ethereal grinders from the increasingly prolific Exael (West Mineral Ltd., xpq?, and Anòmia) and fellow Berlin resident Arad Acid for LA's Motion Ward.
Ramping up the kinetic intensity from previous outings, the seven tracks here boundlessly teem with genre-bending energy and endless imagination. For proof, check the wavvy, spring-loaded bounce on their collaborative tune "Upward Spiral" or the electric burst beginning Arad Acid's "Torqued Light", eventually sloping into a hazier downtempo affair on the track's backside. To our ears, this is a showcase of a unique sound hitting its stride, and there is p l e n t y to digest for both fans of esoteric dance music and abstract electronics.
