Xosar - Let Go


(£15.29 Incl VAT)

Black Opal

Released 9th September 2016

Synthesizer and drum machine obsessive Xosar (AKA producer Sheela Rahman) has enjoyed a productive few years, building a formidable reputation via releases on Rush Hour, L.I.E.S and Creme Organization. Here she delivers her first full-length for Opal Tapes' occasional vinyl offshoot, Black Opal. It's perhaps a little less colourful and synthesizer-heavy than previous excursions, instead focusing on dark, fuzzy, heavily percussive takes on acid house and techno. There are fascinating interludes - see the wonky industrial IDM of "Prophylaxis" and the beatless synth madness of "Gnome Circle" - but it's the more floor-friendly excursions like “The Pit” and “Watching Waiting Wanting” (and most profoundly the bleak and intense "Hades Gates") that really stand out. 12" Vinyl 140g.
