Luke Abbott - 'Wysing Forest'

Icy peaks and static spasms from the Norwich producer

Luke Abbott - 'Wysing Forest'

Album Info

  • Release Date: June 23, 2014
  • Label: Border Community
8 / 10 Norwich producer Luke Abbott's last album, 2010’s ‘Holkham Drones’, was a triumphant blend of psychedelia, electronica and acid house. ‘Wysing Forest’ on the other hand, has abandoned structured rhythms for an improvised approach, and sounds like krautrock legends Cluster trying to play ‘Druqks’ by Aphex Twin. Beginning with the ambient lament of ‘Two Degrees’, it builds through 12-minute noise-techno epic ‘Amphis’, ascends the icy peaks of ‘Free Migration’, pauses during the squeaking thrum of ‘Tree Spirit’, spasms in the static feedback of ‘Snippet’ and finishes with a slow, euphoric reprise of ‘Amphis’. Currently, there are few notable British producers creating such brilliantly odd pieces of music as this.
