Obadia, Where Does Dust Come From EP [Autres Directions In Music – MOULIN009, 2005]

February 25th, 2005

moulin009After the to say the least immense 30 cities/30 artists compilation release from last year (2004) comes the playful “Where Does Dust Come From EP”. Be it that the tongue-in-cheek factor is a bit high for my personal liking this release strengthens the Adim label’s identity. Lightly processed acoustic guitar and handclap forms the outlines of “Don’t forget to be late” all set in a lo-fi surrounding. “Lounge” focuses on cut-ups leaving the acoustic feeling behind and is residing in an alternate up-tempo hip-hop mode. “Rubrix Groove” follows along the same lines of thought and is groovy in its own way. “Wicked Lounge” is a technofied and cut-up version of the cut-up based “Lounge”, a remix? “Crooked Grind Variation” based on ultra classic samples it’s probably just that. The remaining “Some Hot Lazy Day” and “Den Saknade Gitarren” (Hey, what’s this all about, a cryptic title in Swedish? The title translates to: The Missing Guitar) end the EP in the same quirky way it started. It’s nice to see that the Adim label and associated artists still are ignoring the icebergs.
