about

The 29th Singularity Recordings release comes from Blind Summit.
His first release since his beautiful album Held on the Weight of Whispers.
This EP is more beat driven than previous blind summit work, mixing his complex, orchestral melodies with the techno sensibilities of Robert Hood and Jeff Mills.
The title track, Last Crossed, is a wonderful piece of electronica, starting with a solid broken techno rhythm, some melancholic strings lurk in the background, but over time a more uplifting electronic melody fades in, bringing light and energy as the beat builds.
The lasting effects of this track is cleansing, releasing, like taking a breath of cool crisp air.
Subverting Visions is a much more minimal workout, polyrhythmic, tripped out percussion is underpinned by an absolutely pure, clean electronic kick drum driving us forwards. The breakdown takes the whole feeling into a more confusing, paranoid state, spinning your mind around with a twisted and dissonant chordal riff. This is as pure as techno gets.
The final track, Those Distant Few, begins with the sound of an ocean of broken glass breaking against a metallic beach.
The beat takes cues from dubstep and bass music, but the textures are all techno. Noise bursts and metallic splashes cascade around stripped back melody that takes us back to a more pensive state. Again, as with a lot of Blind Summit work, this piece is extremely evocative of landscapes. the pictures drawn up are calm, desolate, epic and peaceful, much like the coast of the north east of england.
Blind Summit has moved forwards with his sound, this time giving us a more reductive, purer representation of his musical creativity, and yet filled with subtle detail. This EP is very much about the purity of the perfect note.
