Bas Amro: Imposter Persona 12"

Bas Amro: Imposter Persona 12″

This one sneaked up on me, I had it on my hard drive for a while and when I finally got around to playing it on Crush Collision last night, it clicked. It reminds me of the Mr. Fingers-isms of Khotin, but not quite as brazenly melodic. It’s way more subtle, with some of the edges blurred and hazy. Minimal, tech-y, a little dubby, but also a bit mysterious. Aside from the beat, the sounds in “Dissociation” all seem to be playing backwards, but it takes a few minutes for you to even notice. “Defensive” ups the classy dub-house-disco quotient. The opening title track is still the winner, though.
