Fourth delivery in the S.O.N.S series, ‘Shin-Okubo One Night Stand‘ puts on offer what are certainly the boldest non-linear audio epics the man has released yet, establishing just as wisely as a sequel but as a proper standalone piece as well. Cinematic yet danceable, undecidedly appealed by Everestian heights all the while traveling the infra-world with eagle vision, this new outing further asserts S.O.N.S as a sure-handed producer with an unparalleled knack for crafting this subtle melange of micro-organic technoid scapes and extra wide-angle compositions.
The sonic odyssey logically begins with ‘The Dawn‘ as a warm, increasingly bright light casts its nascent rays upon an ocean of green. The soaring kosmische nature of the track seems to pledge a straightforward trip at first but S.O.N.S spices things up rapidly, tweaking the synths into an ardent synthetic bonfire. Things get further experimental-friendly on ‘Drum 03‘ – a playful downtempo jam melding a healthy dose of field-recording with subtle percs and drum taps that wouldn’t feel out of place on a choice Dreesvn 12″.
