Drifted Entities Vol. 2 (Limited Edition)
Healing Force Project
Warning: Last items in stock!
The second instalment in a pair from the mind of genius abstract sound painter Antonio Marini, AKA Healing Force Project. Whereas 'Vol. 1' had a dubwise expanse between the primordial space-grooves, here Marini jettisons the former's amorphous flow, upping the tempo and intensity in an abstract yet funky style. Bearing the hallmarks of a true musician and a scientist, here he splices and assembles myriad sources, effortlessly blurring the lines between jazz funk, jungle and broken beat, making complex ideas work with formidable fluidity.
Spring-heeled basslines meet brass, piano, rhodes, and FX, which bob and weave around the detailed framework of beats; the elements dancing freely and independently, but also interlocking and rotating like cogs. At points the album brings to mind Chris Cunningham and Aphex Twin's strange automaton 'Monkey Drummer' video, and at others it recalls the latter's 'Drukqs,' only more '70s and wigged out.
