- Cenotaph by Bass Communion
8/10 Mike Staff review, 01 December 2011
Bass Communion is a project that has been going for some time, doing some deep, dark, floaty ambient textures. This time round they're underpinned by some insistent muddy techno beats but the brief remains about the same. Ghostly throbs and swirls, largely centred around the low and mid ends of the frequency spectrum, which crackle and swell with a subtlety that is best appreciated late at night. At one point they're joined by a man slapping crazily at his legs in time to the beat and tapping his foot noisily...oh, wait, no, that's just Phil getting into the vibes. There's a few moments where you can hear some echoey treble like you're trapped down the sewers and you can't find your sewer buddy and you can just hear their trainers squeaking in the distance and that, but whenever you turn a corner there's nobody there. And then the odd note of glassy synth pokes through too, but emphasis is mainly on the bowel-loosening bass swells, a bit like Deathprod if he had an antisocial neighbour who was into minimal Berlin techno. There's moments where it's reminiscent of Gas. Leave the phone off the hook, knock back the strongest prescription painkillers you've got, and take a visit to the spooky soundworld of Bass Communion.
