Cycles of Moebius - RGBW

Carpe Sonum
(COL017: 708527175323)
Release date: 06/09/2017
Genre: Electronic

Belgian label Colours is a collective of ambient electronic artists running a small, virtual enclave for like-minded practitioners of fine sonic art. Cycles of Moebius obviously embrace a pretty committed and focused work ethic; their debut, a massive four CDR work called RGBW, plays like a compendium of electronic music’s rich heritage from the 70s onwards. CoM comprise a duo of enterprising synth boffins who not only lovingly embrace the potent tempos beloved of so many classic ambient purveyors, but do so without the slightest bit of pretension or irony; electronic music, plain and simple, indulging in styles past minus categorical baggage, erected with clean hands and composure.

Encompassing individual tracks, mini-suites, and suites, often blending tracks together into a unified whole, RGBW has it all in one massive package: post-Namlook ambient, widescreen cinematic atmospherics, Berlin School-inflected sequencer riffing, nostalgic 90s beatstuff, and just about every sub-genre you can pack in-between. Throughout the journey, many delights await, such as the various “Cycle” tracks, both in their numbered and ‘re’-cycled forms, spin colorful threads of analog and digital gossamer into tapestries of engaging rhythmic patterns and deep-space calisthenics. Nearly four hours of music herein, and not a duff note in the bunch.
