it took almost two years to release the second of rael’s three ep series, you might say? rael’s music is not only designed with patience, it is also needless to drown the saturated music market with one idea only, in far too much variations - david minor and me raabenstein take their time to deliver fresh blood. having produced and released several solo projects since
then, the three tracks on ‘frame 4-6’ play in the wide and exciting field between the pure abusiveness of au courant electronic music production and diminutive moments lost in thought.
although nobody needs new and misplaced genre types, we simply call this post-cinematic.
widely specialized in hyper-minimalist-pulsating poptronica and polymorphic post-modern synth excursions, nonine recordings is progressively making a name to become an obvious reference in the production of unusual electronic music. offered by this berlin based label, rael’s ‚frame 4-6’ is a super tripped out, mysterious abstract playful electronic release. this second release from rael is taking post-structural electronic music to a higher level thanks to the combination of really atypical sound textures and melodic techniques. a serious cross between space music, cinematic retro-ish synthedelica grooves and discreet dubsteping sonic ambiences.
“drunk baby walk” offers a catchy coalition between lo-fi moody electronic heaviness and totally hypno-ish techno vibes for loops, constantly dynamic and moving rhythmical bass lines and bizarre conversations with surreal sounds, treated voices. “mandrake black case” delivers a gorgeously pulsating and enthralling electronic soundtracky ambience which reminds some wonderfully classic spooky scores of goblin, fabio frizzi (…) but also machine-music pieces from brassica, heinrich dressel at their most cinematic moments. “dolphins at home follows” a rather similar schema with handful of creeped-out synthesized textures, smashing-syncopated-electronic pulses and frenzy sound figures. ‚frame 4-6’ is an engaging and explosive ep which releases an orchestrated stylistic fusion between chilling-scary cinematic synth ambiences and swirling hypnotic techno inflected minimalism. it deserves a serious listening.
