A minimalism so rich in emotions it’s almost painful - Morkebla’s newest EP is about as intense as it can get. Developing his beat-infused ambient sound, Morkebla had a busy year in 2014 releasing a couple of EPs as well as his excellent debut album on well-respected labels like Where to now? and Reckno while also having the time to remix one of Wedding Acid Group’s frantic tracks for Farbwechsel.
This time around, he brings his absolute best with five ambitious, deeply disturbing pieces that just devour the unsuspected listener. Insanely dragged out and irresistibly driving at the same time, the songs are built from looped up heavy textures surrounded by throbbing, muted, ever-colliding beats. 'Meet Me In A Decompression Chamber' is an unmissable collection of far out, perfected mutant songs exploring the unknown.
As if this wasn’t enough in itself, the release is also backed by three remarkable remixes. KETEV’s version is almost like James Holden gone noise-techno, label head S. Olbricht delivers an exceptionally solid remix while Beatrice Dillon closes with a seemingly dark reinterpretation that by the end, somehow manages to crawl to the surface and reach some comforting near-harmony.
