The third vinyl release on Manjumasi comes from enigmatic Ukranian
producer Silat Beksi, whose work shines in its expertly honed details.
Each of his productions is infused with an intricate sense of groove and
texture — one is left with the feeling that describing his sound as
“minimal” does not do it justice.
Over the course of many vinyl
releases, he has shown himself to have a unique sonic touch, a style
that is best described as his own.
The A-side features two works.
Lead track DNA is a moody affair with an extremely deep descending
bassline that anchors the low-end, while atmospheric pads develop above.
The track is imbued with a feeling of life, evolving, emerging from the
shadowy mists. This is followed up by Frozen, a more groove-forward
number with an emphasis on trippy melodic details and vocal edits that
keep the ears constantly engaged.
On the B side is Light In The
Darkness, a meditative but driving track with a long and very deliberate
energetic build. As the name suggests, this one conveys a sense of
optimism, with wide pads that evoke new possibilities opening ahead.
