Fresh off the back of its previous EP on bbbbbb, Cucumb45 presents another outstanding release.
Whilst the recent ‘Something Weirdcore’ challenged our understanding of genre, the latest release takes things further, playing with our perception of acoustic space.
Immersive textures are introduced without warning, just as quickly as they are withdrawn, never to be heard again. From the nostalgic harmonies of ‘Cyxlobblobs5’ to the unnerving glitches of the title track, high velocity drums of ‘Aqua Elba’ and mangled juke patterns of ‘CATpitchd5’, the EP darts its way through a range of new territories without hesitation.
Never one to conform, Cucumb45 rejects familiar structures, rapidly jumping between ideas whilst manipulating the physical properties of his sound.

The idea that the beats in this are programmed and not some interstellar jazz drummer bringing the funk with some incredible tech-fusion kit is a little hard to wrap your head around. It sounds so natural and gloriously flowing. Thoroughly recommended. Egg Wizard
