R-Zone 11 - Visions Of A Deepweb / Xochis Awakening / Positive Sequence
The much loved and mysterious R-Zone series rolls on here with another new EP, this time made up of three more moody and atmospheric cuts.
First track 'Visions Of A Deepweb' is a slow and predatory crawl through a barren cosmic landscape. Synths spiral around you and encase you in paranoia as heavy drums trudge out a groove below. The track grows ever more stormy and turbulent, never letting your attention wane. 'Xochisa Wakening' is a much more spacious and less intense affair with no drums, just dripping water; tons of reverb and groaning deep space ambient sounds that suggest you are in total free fall. Continuing with the intergalactic feel, the final track 'Positive Sequence' sounds like a voyage through space, with heavenly pads adding tons of beautiful atmosphere, gently ticking percussion driving things along and plenty of little sonic details all drifting by in the background. Various cinematic images play out in your mind throughout this EP, and that makes it all the more appealing as a result.
