Deep’a & Biri’s Black Crow Records further expands its horizons with its seventh release, welcoming another new artist to the family following appearances by 2030, Aril Brihka, Hakimonu, Luke Hess, ROD, Inland and Markus Suckut. The Analog Roland Orchestra’s label debut follows the widely acclaimed 2030 EP and shares with it a widening of the label’s sonic scope to once again showcase Deep’a & Biri’s desire to reach beyond techno and explore ambient and cinematic musical textures.
Michal Matlak’s Analog Roland Orchestra finds the Poland born & Berlin based producer in the conductor role among an array of classic electronic hardware, taking on the role of shaping & directing a free flowing sound that moves across genres, whether in a studio or live setting. His previous releases for labels including Ornaments, Rotary Cocktail Recordings and Pastamusik have seen the project indulge in an array of sounds across the techno spectrum. ‘Aftermath II’ is no different, moving from the classic roots techno sounds of ‘Plant’ and ‘Father Detroit’, through the dub excursion of ‘Urei Dub’, to the cinematic, Boards of Canada & Tangerine Dream-recalling pair ‘Her’ and ‘Aftermath. For those with a taste for electronic music’s widescreen possibilities, TARO’s arrival on the Tel Aviv imprint will be a long term favourite.
