Following their excellent debut release ‘All Watched Over From The Clouds By Loving Grace‘, London-based collective and tape-only outlet Good Genes return with their second instalment ‘Solaris to Panthalassa‘, a superb double-sided mixtape courtesy of Firecracker label boss Lindsay Todd under his House of Traps guise for the A side while Good Genes co-founder Ali himself takes care of the flip.
House of Traps’ 45-minute audio journey makes for a majestic odyssey through abysmal-deep scapes, drifting from field-recordings-laden sequences to a febrile organic spectrum reminiscent of Edward Artemiev’s ‘Stalker‘ soundtrack. An absolute wonder of sound design and arrangements to say the least.
On the B side, Ali beefs it up with a groovier touch, fleshing out a thundering instrumental ruckus with some tribal psychedelia. Blending drum-loaded phases and noisey guitar riffs in a boiling hotchpotch or collating distorted Japanese folk songs and afrobeat percussions in a raw, chaos-inducing dash, the GG resident nails it hard.
Solaris to Panthalassa is out now, head over to their Facebook page for more info.
