Proceeding into the fall from a sweltering summer last inhabited by the epic G​reeen Linez album T​he Calm,​ D​iskotopia​ co-­head BD1982​ offers a 4­ track EP titled S​alience a​s a mood-­altering supplement. The material here was inspired by the various neurophysical responses to environmental stimuli in everyday situations. B​D1982’​s sonic manifestation of this particular exploration of self is an organic progression from where last year’s O​perratorr​ EP left off although new horizons are subtly breached and expanded upon in a skewed fashion befitting the Diskotopia lineage.

The fluttering synths which open S​patial​ set an affable tone that carries throughout the proceedings even as a weighted bassline drags the journey into full subterranean depths. Spatial ​is what would arise on a spliced tape reel recorded during a twenty-­four hour bashment rave held in a Nordic techno club during the darkest light of winter months.

The broken pulsating funk of P​hysical ​presents a psychedelic turn of the corner in the mind’s eye. Traces of tribal percussion find themselves intertwined with phased Moog phrases and fused with Akai-­indebted pattern formations. P​hysical​ manifests as a soundtrack to windmill routines at a b­-boy battle held miles above the Bronx on a helicarrier made from obsolete Yamaha keyboards in an alternate version of 1996.

There’s an undeniable aura of dread in the midst of O​beah Mirrors. ​A ghostly shell of garage slinks and slides around bursts of electricity that accentuate an incessant drive of mutated arpeggios. Running O​beah Mirrors​ in fine style is sure to cause trace trans­dimensional hieroglyphs to appear on the walls of any establishment in which it is unleashed.

Myakkah​ finds his way back to D​iskotopia ​by way of a sensual edit of R​otary Drive.​ A lived-­in quality waxes the bloodshot lens here, lending the mind to wander to past days of loves both won and lost to the ether. Knocking kicks and agile claps tether a bubbling lead to a saturated body leaving the senses to take over mind, body and soul in a warehouse sense of salience.
