Stellar OM Source Joy One Mile
Vinyl Double LP, CD. RVNG Intl.
8/10 from Li'l Biz (Staff) on 05 June 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.

We're not your normal record shop...
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.
