Random Phrase

(Error Broadcast)

Release date: Oct 11, 2010

Top surfing the tornado our Fly Russia compilation unleashed last month, Moscow beat sophisticater OL delivers his Random Phrase EP fresh from the spray. There is something magic about young OL's music, something lurking behind his polyrhythmic, anfractuous beats that is difficult to put a finger on. The tracks on Random Phrase swim from warm noise, yet there is a starless depth beneath echoing his past in Minimal and Dub Techno. Into this, OL injects melody as mutant riddims that once come sweet and spacy the same as sick and stomach-turning next after. You might recognize the connection to LA's Hip Hop trailblazer Shlohmo in the entanglement of Beat, Dub, and Ambient music. Yet OL manages to settle his own niche, delivering the score to what Moscow cats in rarely lit basements spastically move their body to.
