This deliciously befuddling split tape is the second release from Brighton's Kit Records.
On side A, Kit is proud to present "Patches", the début EP from Canterbury producer B£AMS. Brimming with warm washes of drone, "Patches" forms a persistently morphing cluster of stoned hip-hop, gospel and highlife. Densely layered stutter beats, drunk synth, lost voices and temporal distortion flit in and out of earshot, inducing a joyful lostness. Riding this sea of colourful wooze, B£AMS channels Madlib, and Mssrs David and Dear, Oneohtrix Point Never, Pefuse 73 with an attention span resembling adult-onset ADHD.
Occupying a spiritual, unheimlich universe, side B reveals the first recordings from enigmatic British doctor and sonic traveller TESLA. On this collection of songs, entitled "Lazer-AC", he dredges sea caves for dense undulations of jazz-infused drone and marshals armies of static from somewhere above the clouds. Hypnotic mantras, eroded landscapes and encoded loops are run through analogue tape equipment, à la Matthew David or Leyland Kirby, as TESLA collates the muttered instructions for some future gestalt soft machine. Astonishing.
