Review of Basal [12k1014]

Grooves (US)

Squeezing between Shuttle358 and kid606 circa PS I Love You, Sogar’s J├╝rgen Heckel brings some fumbling guitar playing and powerline drones to the glitch/click party. It’s impressive enough, especially the way in which “Dek Here” builds its quietly contemplative buzzes to a subtle, layered climax. Elsewhere, wire surges and humming drones add to the somewhat melancholic feel. Austere and serious, but that be expected on this label. Certainly a worthwhile addition to the 12k roster. – JG
