Oren Ambarchi drops possibly his most substantial release to date, the polyrhythmic tendencies of Hubris.
Produced with the help of a who's who of artists on and associated with his regular imprint Editions Mego; Crys Cole, Mark Fell, Will Guthrie, Arto Lindsay, Jim O'Rourke, Konrad Sprenger, Joe Talia, Ricardo Villalobos, Keith Fullerton Whitman all helping on production duties and Stephen O'Malley on design while the whole thing is mastered by Rashad Becker.
Now, while the artists involved may read like the guest list at the Mego Christmas party, the real gift here is the music they have sculpted. Built of two long-form tracks and one short excerpt mid way through, Hubris is a hypnotic journey into the mind of Ambarchi, woodblock techno structures that slowly build into proper psych freakouts reminiscent of the meandering endless days spent in production jams of Robert Grohl during his recording time in Conny Plank's studio.
Absolutely essential experimental exceptional techno, merry Xmas from Mego!
