Abdulla Rashim - A Shell of Speed 2x12"

Article number: NE24
Quantity: 3
Last year, Abdulla Rashim took time out to develop his alternative Lundin Oil project, delivering two EPs of in-your-face noise and industrial techno textures for Northern Electrics. Here, he switches back to his main creative name for a second Abdulla Rashim set that joins the dots between intense, beatless ambience and modular techno box jams. Despite the general bleakness of his sounds and method, A Shell of Speed is surprisingly picturesque and melodious in parts, with the brilliant "Crossing Qalandiya" delivering the kind of trippy, delay-laden electronic soundscapes that recall the halcyon days of IDM and ambient. Even so, it's his more surging, rhythmically intense compositions - see "Red Pool" and "Ador Tracers" - that arguably stand out.
