9/10 Mike Staff review, 27 March 2014

Here’s album number four, ‘4’, from veteran ambient duo Boozoo Bajou, an eight-piece suite of delicately constructed soundscapes heavy in synths but also containing guitar, percussion and piano. Friends pop up on a couple of tracks playing flugelhorn and strings as well as extra synths.

Opener ‘Jan Mayen’ eases us in gracefully with subtle and formless percussive tinkles and the aforementioned flugelhorn jazzily wandering around an understated ambient synthscape. Beats are introduced in second track ‘Phonetrik’ but even these drift in and out of focus worriedly, with the song’s various elements introduced in tentative, piecemeal fragments, a plinking piano fades in and out, a soul singer croons “I want you to understand” and then is silent, while hazy Morricone guitar twangs laze prominently in the foreground in an opium stupor.

It’s interesting and sophisticated music, a foggy and space-filled mixture of different ambient and minimal ideas from new agey concord to free-expressive darkness, from the twitchy precision of dry computerised sound that rubs against the puttering humanity of the live instrumentation, they expertly drift around on the edge of melody and rhythm, inviting your subconscious to fill in the gaps. It’s warm and inviting without being too predictable, excellent job.
