First Listen :: Matthew Oh - 'Get in the Fridge'
Dutch imprint Taped Artifact preps it's fourth release featuring Italy's Serendipity Club regular and Outlaw Rec boss, Matthew Oh. Label heads, Kevin Arnemann and Daan Kemp continue to curate a tasteful roster of deep atmospheric indebted artists, making Matthew Oh a brilliant addition to the team. The Psycho Hub EP lays out three tracks that follow Mr. Oh's cosmic techno aesthetic.
Starting off with the title track 'Psycho Hub', Matthew constructs a charismatic composition that phases in and out of the ears with it's dubbed out basslines and confidently sprawling synth stabs. This leads into 'Shroud', which falls deep and dark into a vast abyss of spatial noise and relentless hi-hat paradiddles, that march on a techno rhythmic regime. The EP closes out with 'Get in the Fridge', a phrase taken from a scene in the G.I. Joe cartoon from back in the day. Segments of the 44 second scene are sampled throughout this down-tempo dub cadence, evoking a nature filled atmosphere with distant bird chirps and sedative reverberations like the wind. It's thought-provoking and incredibly relaxing.
