- Allegoria by Sapphire Slows
1 review. Write a review for us »
After the triumph of debut EP ‘True Breath’ and a split with Magic Touch on 100% Silk it’s a pleasure to see Sapphire Slows back so soon with a full length LP on the ever dependable Not Not Fun records. This Tokyo based bedroom producer’s debut ‘Allegoria’ is a genuine treat successfully expanding on previous efforts and introducing a number of new tricks and styles to the staple of lost balearic disco anthems and soft, haunting vocal hooks that have impressed so much on previous outings.
The ten tracks included are surprisingly vast so I’ll be taking my time with it but the stand-out’s on first listen come in the form of acid techno blurzzer ‘Corekill’, Casio dub cruiser ‘Third Party’ with it’s nods to the Peaking Lights empire, the Steve Reich-esque ambient rhythm exploration of ‘Break Control’ as well as beautifully melodic opener ‘Dry Fruits’ and comedown saviour ‘Fade Out’. It would be easy enough to draw comparisons and cross reference ‘Allegoria’’s content within the larger community but I’m gonna take it on face so I can enjoy it’s subtle brilliance unhindered by context. Great debut!
