Reii – Faraway times ep

Faraway times ep
Bump foot

Estamos atravesando una epoca en la música más experimental en la que creemos que mientras más grano apliquemos más radicales o experimentales somos. Eso me hace pensar en los 90 cuando por un afan de meter la mayor cantidad de beats en un mismo compás, story el IDM desencadeno en esa metralleta que se conoció como drill & bass. Subgénero éste, diagnosis terriblemente aburrido y sofocante en el que grandes artistas como Luke Vibert, unhealthy Autechre y Squarepusher cayeron y se volvieron unos de sus máximos exponentes.
Me refiero a esto porque el disco de Reii aunque abusa un poco de ese clisé recurrente que es granular todo cuanto suena logra crear un ep interesante, que transporta y se deja escuchar.

ps: como citan todos los comerciales mexicanos: “todo con medida”.


“After releasing 2 EPs “Aeris Iris” and “For One Day”, here’s the third EP from Reii. Mellow, atmospheric, well-crafted soundscape tracks. Another quality release for coming winter.
Foot is the Ambient and Chilled section of the “Bump Foot” label. Bump is Techno & House and Foot is chilled. It is a Japanese net label started by one of the staff members of Radio307, a Net Radio station. This is the first release I have heard from “Bump Foot” and I must say I am impressed by the quality. This release is done my a Russian calling himself Reii, have a look at the artist link for more details and his contact information. The Album starts off with an interesting yet well produced track that sets the mood for the rest of the album. Immediately with the second track it moves into the ambient realm filling the audio spectrum with drifting pads and nice melodies and this carries over into the 3rd track as well. The last two tracks drifted a little too far into the pure ambient realm for me. I love ambient and would still recommend these two tracks to any ambient fan who like artists like Brian Eno and Steve Roach. But it might be a bit too spaced out for some of you. Overall its a good release from Bump Foot”.
