Gatekeeper/Appleblim - Blip - 12" Vinyl
This EP sees the return of long-term label affiliates Komon & Appleblim for their second collaborative release on Aus. On Motion Blur, the pair expand on their canon and turn in four introspective explorations rich with granular textures and propulsive low-end grooves. The title track blooms behind sandy hats and glistening pads as it builds towards a loose-limbed swing built with broken beat structures. "Key Vision" drives more stuttering kick patterns under spectral sweeps and vocal chops while "Echoes Retreat" rubs resonant bass tones up against sharp, floor-ready synth stabs. "Astir" brings things to a deep and downcast close.
