Random Numbers comes back with "Islands" EP by BXP.
An ecstatic recon through the meaning of isolation where field recording unfolds the ambient/techno sides of BXP’s production. Born from nature, crafted in studio: techno meant for wide landscapes.
"Islands" is the result of a long search spent seeking sounds on various islands during his journey through south-east asia with a Tascam recorder and several directional microphones. He captured natural sounds from jungles, dunes, beaches and wild urban landscapes, not to mention the deep sounds of the Earth’s elements: the sea, the wind, the interaction between man and nature.

Ritual gamelan electronica? Sign me up! I love this unusual blend of heavy percussive grooves, gamelan instrumentation, and electronic synth zones. Can't wait for more from this innovative Glaswegian ensemble. ~ DJ Megasoup aka Selaroda ~
The (mixed) CD version of 'K' is a favourite of mine. So lush. So deep. Especially the build up to the finale of Untitled(1) aka K3.
So I thought I'd pick up this digital version to have the separate tracks. Was shocked to find out that it puts them in an entirely different order!
So, for the best experience, I recommend changing the order to: K4, K1, K3; K6, K5, K2, K7. - or best yet, find a CD version. Simon Chester
