8/10 according to Li'l Biz (Norman Records staff) on Wed 05 Jun, 2013
Christelle Gualdi a.k.a Stellar Om Source returns with a new record on RVNG and I’m sure she wouldn’t mind me describing ‘Joy One Mile’ as a complete departure from previous outings that have appeared on the Aguirre and Olde English Spelling Bee labels. Much like James Ferraro’s sudden embrace of conventional dance music norms Gualdi has abandoned her inspired synth workouts in favour of a Detroit electro/’90s ear warp vibe.
Gualdi does a fine job in this department so I’m only a little disappointed that ‘Joy One Mile’ ain’t as blurzzed as I was hoping, instead it resembles something you’d expect from the 100% Silk label with Gualdi confidently switching to 303 basslines, crisp beat production, housy pads, clever sequencing and cut up vocal samples that are vaguely reminiscent of Ferraro’s concept free ‘Sushi’ LP released last year on Hippos In Tanks.
The resulting sound isn’t anything out of the ordinary but it’s refreshing to hear the Stellar Om Source take on the genre and it’s packing enough killer tracks to keep me occupied. Oh, and to cap it off there’s a tidy remix of album highlight ‘Elite Excel’ by Kassem Mosse that’s well worth the admission alone. Still miss the old synth workouts mind...guess I’ve made my point.
