- The Death of Rave (A Partial Flashback) by Leyland Kirby
1 review. Add your own review.
‘The Death of Rave’ was originally a vast project which existed on Leyland Kirby’s V/Vm Test website between the years of 2006 and 2008. You can read all about it in the press release - interesting stuff. On this CD eight highlights have been compiled and edited into a more manageable-sized physical release - “Proof of its existence,” says the artist.
In this strange paean to the rave age he plunders sounds from various classic sources and Caretakerifies them into unrecognisable swathes of ghostly drones and squeaks and rumbles, not only turning the sounds themselves on their heads but also their intent - music created with expressly social purposes becomes dark, immersive, introspective ambience, with only the occasional ghostly wisp of its original self poking through the dense, reverberating murk.
Generally speaking the album seems to follow an increasingly noisy path, with the first couple of tracks being quite calming and angelic compared to the monstrous sub-bass rumbles and solar wind whooshes that follow later on, but while not always relaxing it’s a consistently immersive and intriguing listen.
