MEMORIAL HOME (FRA/BEL) – WORLD

ALBUM OF THE WEEK

MINI REVIEW

“Anybody expecting to hear cuts on World like the withering ‘Second Floor’ or the relentless ‘Ampere’ which the Barcelona based French/Belgian DJ/Production duo Paul Roux and Jeremy Pinchasi aka Memorial Home released as a split EP with Rapid Eye Movement label mate VII Circle will be sorely disappointed. What they won’t be disappointed in is this titan of a release if they are genuine fans of the immense and broad flavours of electronic music in general. From its indicative opener ‘World’, the LP contains nods to deep techno like ‘Radio Static’ as well as the deep electronica of ‘Train’ and ‘Glasgow’. The dark ambient soundscapes of ‘Conversation’ and the delicate breakbeat of ‘Family Portrait’ are further standouts as is the drum and bass outing, ‘Hold’. The LP even contains a sublime left field dose of electronic pop in the form of ‘Does It Matter’ featuring Georgian artist Tika Balanchine and features the lush sound of spaced out guitar on ‘Pop Fink’. World is a sprawling record that homes in the penchant that Roux and Pinchasi have for sonic experimentation as much they focus on familiar forms. While 20 tracks and 83 minutes is an ambitious debut in anyone’s language, due to its diverse structural make up and its focus on sonic perfection, World manages to keep the attention to go with that ambition throughout.” James Stocker, Indie30.
