Driftmachine – Nocturnes

An interesting release from the ever brilliant Umor Rex records, comes from Driftmachine’s Nocturnes. Between swirling electronic ambience and pulses, moving from bright upbeat and vibrant, to slower, relaxed and gloomy, the foreground has interesting ideas. With slow, heavy dub bass lines stealing the show with their cathartic groove, the rhythmic nature of the album, as per the artists name, lets you drift off into the fantastic chilled bass. It’s a little drawn out over it’s length, with some pieces outstaying their welcome, but the solid opener Claire Obscure is brilliant in it’s relaxing rhythmic nature, with a touch of psychedelia coming from the electronics really rounding off a great sound. Umor Rex records is a great label for all different kinds of ambience, and though a little over-long Nocturnes is another fine example of this.
