After making a memorable debut on Catz n Dogz Pets Recordings with 2017s melodic house roller Grateful, An On Bast aka Anna Suda is back on her compatriots imprint with another distinctive release.
Suda has composed work for modern dance performances, and its not unimaginable that The Ballet Began At Eight might be used for the same purpose. Its woozy submerged synths coalesce in a floaty, summery haze, animated with a bobbing beat to create a perfect ambient scene-setter.
Life in a Hammock is livelier than its title suggests, with jaunty stabs laid over spacey, muddied acid synths. Para keeps us on our feet, hips moving to its steady, tribal beat, chant-like African vox and persuasive handclaps, while closing track Sway blends elements from the previous three. Stiching calming, flutey synths to Afro-beats, a rippling arp and warm chords in a dazzling, dancefloor-geared finale.
It's another varied, deftly executed release from one of Polands leading ladies.
