Three Holes In A Bucket
Waltz With Bashir
One of the hottest new talents to come out of the techno melting pot in recent times, Blaxad makes his full fledged debut on Kuiper Noise with ‘Three Holes In a Bucket’, a stunning 3-tracker complete with all the bits and pieces you might expect from a superior sound craftsman.
In turns dense and menacing, trippy and dream-like, hypnotic and pounding, running at roughly 18 minutes, the EP is both timely in showcasing the French producer’s full skills and surgical in how it erects a self-contained environment that’s quick to transport one’s senses into a territory both strange and familiar — and one that’s all the more precious for it.
From the top, the title track erupts like a noir-movie on steroids, hinting in places at the labyrinthine mindset of modern society, while still grasping for measured gushes of light, giving it the distinct aspect of a foreign object untouched by science.
Next comes ‘Access Denied’, invoking the hunting urgency of a wild beast on the prowl, sneaking into the mix situations of concocted suspense, elevated by the mysterious sensuousness of circular metal works and spontaneous percussion drive-byes.
The record then ends in style with what is perhaps the waviest ride of them all — ‘Waltz With Bashir’ — a one-way mindtrip into early night oblivion, juggling between subdued notes of hope and progressive low-end witchcraft, on top of a seamless tapestry of textures.
All in all, ‘Three Holes In a Bucket’ does what it was always destined to do: dazzle the spirit and sequester the mind.
