Norway’s Báhkin remixes the beautiful Know How from the UK’s Equalisation to glorious results.
Those of us who once reveled in the dreamlike delicacy of alternative, ambient electronic music – trip hop escapism from the likes of Lemon Jelly – will quickly find something to love about this release.
Taking its time to softly envelop listeners, the track breathes life into the room with subtle confidence. The echoing chord progression washes over in waves, and meanwhile these fragments of experimental yet satisfying melody meander around in your head-space.
While there’s plenty going on, there are also just enough moments of repetition and ongoing familiarity to create a truly entrancing experiencing. In the same instance, that experience is one of joy, optimism – it’s uplifting, hopeful, and it can either energize or calm depending on what you need from it.
A beautiful release, unique on multiple levels – particularly amidst today’s musical landscape. Turn it up and let yourself fall into the moment.
