Document Pt. 3

The third and final installment of Spectral Sound’s Document 12” series offers four choice cuts from our era-defining, Ryan Elliott-curated label comp. Kassem Mosse’s remix of Lawrence’s “Divided” is a fiendishly tight slow-burner, fitting its ricky-ticky hi-hats and sharp-edged snares together like cogs in a Swiss watch. The German producer twists parts around, testing various permutations, and rewards his patient listeners with a dusting of synthesized bliss at the end. Heiroglyphic Being’s rust-flecked “Got No Place to Go” traffics in humid ambience and smoggy gestures, evoking a post-apocalyptic dawn, distant bird calls and all. On the flip, Spectral newcomer Gadi Mizrahi’s masterful “She Only Looks at You” hints at krautrock and tech-house while a thoughtful organ hums in the background, and Kate Simko’s buoyant “Zhivago” plays ping-pong with a bucket of electronic toms while a crowd-revving synth swell makes itself useful at just the right moment.
