Comment: this set of 8 tracks clocking in at a 17 minute only is based on fragmented and slowed-down (trip-hop) beats being adorned with different kind of speech samples (with regard to music production). I can remember for that the Spaniard Mikel Martínez`s first outings (Health Needs; Buenas Son Tortas) were clearly more post-rock, indie(tronica) and folk(tronica)-tinged, however, this set of tracks is produced to be fully without any guitars (though obviously employing more exotic instruments). (No I am being wrong – 84 Years employs guitars, though). So it can be said the artist will have moved on to new terrains. For me, however, the technical and instrumental side of the albums is not the most important thing in music. I like those cinematic samples which used to appear here at times. Furthermore, it can be said microscopic moody moments are variegated with more arousing, beatific peaks (at Waveforms, for instance). The release is emotionally vectorised. The whole is coherent among its particles you are not allowed to feel a slacker flow throughout the course. Of course, with regard to the contemporary sample-based urban music we cannot deny the influence of Flying Lotus. The solid outing is a part of the discography of Dusted Wax Kingdom.
