‘The Bedroom Club’ compilation series continues. Lo-fi/downtempo auteurs rolling in from around the globe.. :
Finnish ‘artic-house-impressionist’ Ukkonen – whose debut LP on Uncharted Audio was a 2012 highlight for NPIP – contributes the opener..John Ola’s (Sweden) downtempo debut track soothes, easing us into.. Buffalo Tide (UK) swirling, big-room bass.. and mystic Beams (Czech Republic/UK) squashed-house.. Fresh from her EP on patten’s KALEIDOSCOPE label, side two opens with Karen Gwyer’s (UK/US) slow release “bath-house”… Ornine (London/China) slays it with the kilter less concrete-dancehall of ‘Bantha Fodder’ …and ends with Dyymond of Durham, a new audio/visual collaboration between Matthew Barnes (aka acclaimed No Pain In Pop act Forest Swords) and fine artist Otto Baerst, whose ‘Hunger’ will feature on a debut EP due 2013.
