nautilis: untitled 7"
Reviewed by sheikh ahmed (absorb.org)
another impeccable release in the planet mu series of 7". we thought nautilis had an amazing 2002 by releasing some of our favourite music then. this came before all that and it's interesting to hear the progression he's made. 'marufo' bizarrely breaks open with a sample from missy elliot before settling into a groove that moves from the rough to the smooth with easy abandon. his skill is in fusing well crafted compositions based around melody against totally insane percussion; like the two were created seperately. for those new to nautilis, we suggest maybe sticking to the albums, but this is still essential for everyone else.
