Laslo employs bass lines constructed through experimentations with LFOs to drive the music, the bass lines largely taking over the role of melody and creating a rich, propulsive low end that keeps each of the five tracks moving forward constantly. This strategy allows for the other elements in his work to emerge throughout the music with a level of detail and attention that encourages close and careful listening as the nuanced spaces he is creating in this EP unfold endlessly. At times the music produced by Laslo feels as though a radio dial is being turned, tuning into stations which just happen to be sympathetic to one another, each expanding upon the ideas of the last.
By employing a set of rigid rules to create musical structures and poly-rhythms, Laslo takes constricting logic sets as a method to encourage immense freedom through unexpected and off-kilter tempos, pattern lengths and time signatures, each minimal adjustment leading to surprising moments of clarity and subtlety in sound before fading back into the mix. By engaging in controlled experiments and processes that produce a surprisingly humanistic machine funk, the EP encourages the listener to return again and again to discover new moments of immense beauty. Minden Nap Vasarnap highlights that, more often than not, a less is more approach will garner far more compelling results. Sculpted in real time with a mixing board, the active engagement of Laslo is apparent throughout the project.
The confidence shown in this work should not be taken for granted, an immensely polished piece of experimental dub music, Minden Nap Vasarnap shows us a deeply focused producer working within a musical space filled with his own voice, rich with possibilities.
