    <b> Boxcutter </b> - Oneiric

    Coming from Ireland, Boxcutter present his album titled ONEIRIC, a double 12”/CD (the CD has four bonus tracks) released by Mike Paradinas’ Planet Mu. Barry Lynn has chosen the right title for his album, because ONEIRIC is a blend of dub, i.d.m. and ambient where the reverb is the main effect used. The effect created is similar to certain isolationist records (some of the latest Scorn releases) but with the rhythmic attitude of break beat. Each track has a different flavour (for example see the jazzy “Mossy”, the grime bass of the opening “Tauhid” or of “Hyloz” and the ‘60s soul r’n’b attitude of “Bad you do”) and Boxcutter is able to switch through different genres with easiness giving to his first album a good balance for an hour of ambient danceable cuts where the bass is always pumping and the tension is always at the top!
