EKOPLEKZ - UNFIDELITY (2LP)


"On this, his debut album for Planet Mu - with Mike Paradinas working alongside Nick to pick the fruits of his labour - Nick Edwards' Ekoplekz project creates an album that feels just right for Mu. Ekoplekz has previously released on a number of labels, but with Unfidelity the music aligns itself with Mu's melodic sensibilities and lets the early 90's electronica influences bleed in, although the album still has the intensely transporting feel that all his work possesses. The title track is the big giveaway to Nick's music if you've not heard it before. A hands on approach to music making, 4-track recordings, un-sequenced and murky with a molasses-thick harmonic drone that needs to come with a 'do not listen to whilst driving heavy machinery' warning, leaving you with a mood flashback to the fuggy feeling of a teenage bong intake. The music on Unfidelity has a dreamy, nocturnal feel. It's perpetually damp, with muffled drums, cloudy dissonance and dubbed-out metallic squalls, it owes as much to King Tubby as LFO, or to the Radiophonic Workshop as Harmonia."
