The strain of synthesizer cosmosis harvested by Bristol-born Europe-roving psycho-maestro Antoni Maiovvi tends towards the longform and texturally opulent. Past dalliances in horror giallo and intergalactic disco have demonstrated his capacity for mood sculpture as well as dancefloor pleasure nodes, but his latest LP, Avrokosm, assumes an almost ethno-musicological perspective of a distant desert planet. Swirling sand dunes of sound, cold tonal winds, and veiled loops sweep in across pulsing, runic techno patterns. Begun in Berlin but finished in Madrid, the record shares some of the sprawl and mysticism of certain unclassifiable Warriors Ov Gaia sides, a neo-tribal fantasy of rhythmic cave-painting, fires flickering in ancient caves under twin blood moons - the Avrokosm as microcosm for man the animal. Six processions bound for the same horizon. Mastered by Alek Stark at Fundamental Audio. Sci-fi landscape sleeve artwork by Annita Rivera; layout by Eric Lee.
