Picking up where the first volume left off, Montreal-based Booma Collective‘s second episode of ‘The Furnace Series‘ should hit all good record stores in a couple of days. This new instalment, featuring five tracks from a cluster of friends and well-known affiliated producers like Solpara and Paul Trafford, keeps extending the collective’s distinctive approach to sound-making.
By turns peeping towards ambientish deep-house scapes and more experimental, trance-inducing grooves, this multifaceted bazaar of mind-expanding crossovers does the splits between supposedly distant genres and diverse rhythmic shifts with impressive aplomb.
Today we’re glad to premiere Paul Trafford’s ‘Untitled‘ cut, which certainly counts as one of the most meaningful examples of the collective’s will to escape easy classification in order to build up its own totemic audio realm.
Unleashing a Muslimgauze-indebted 8-minute long frenzy of oriental percussions and languid pad envelops, blending warlike tribal drumming and further meditative keyboard sequences at a restless pace, the Montrealer offers a particularly enthralling sound excursion through an equally hostile and lush jungle sound fantasy.
The Furnace Series Vol. 2 is out via Booma Collective this week.
