Argentinian electronic artist Aylu diverts herself from her intricate experiments in footwork to release a curious CD EP titled Serum, after a system made from five small electro-acoustic systems. It’s meant that her work is sparser and more free, deliberately unbound from many decision-making aspects.

- Serum by Aylu
Argentinian producer Ailín Grad makes something of a departure from her more frenetic tapes for Orange Milk, Memory No. 36 Recordings and outlines, with a delightful snack size CD EP on Sun Araw’s always reliable Sun Ark label. ‘Serum’ comes in five little micro doses and exudes an exquisite, serene energy. Ailín’s electro-acoustic sounds are never static yet despite so much movement, the vibe is just totally placid. The overall effect of the EP is like floating in some viscous neon pink jelly inhabited by tiny friendly creatures that dart around blowing delicate bubbles, and swim inside the ears, making crystalline twinkles, chimes and chinks that tingle as they rebuild the broken circuits in my frazzled mind. Things switch up a little in the restrained climax of the fifth track with its glassy and metallic skeletal rhythms and use of vocals. There’s a complexity to these little soundworlds yet they feel infinitely spacious and are never demanding. There’s basically zero effort required on the listeners part. A magical, tranquil sonic tonic - a perfect time-out.
