First released as a two part 12", The Furnace Series is a two-part compilation of music inspired by a special room in the Montréal apartment shared by Booma Collective from 2012-2014. When venues to throw parties became scarce, Booma used this room leading to the fire escape in the back of the apartment - known as The Furnace - as a space for small gatherings among close friends. The Furnace Series is a collection of memories of those intimate parties and impromptu jam sessions.
Part one features four tracks by Booma Collective founders and friends, beginning with "Psyche" - a hypnotic, dub-techno inspired composition with oscillating, piercing sounds, evoking whistling flurries. Solpara's "Garden in the Furnace" echoes the hollowed-out concrete architecture of The Furnace itself, filling up then emptying its atmosphere with layered drum machines and ghostly voices. "CF01" is the result of feedback experimentation carefully arranged into a slow tribal jam.. Oren Ratowsky. producer of Booma Collective's first vinyl release, rounds off the B side with "Gorby", an eleven and a half minute exploration of his mastery of analog synthesizers.
Following the first Installment of The Furnace Series, Solparas Thinking of Jaeta is a dark techno ode to a fictional androgynous creature who lives on the moon, haunted by earths turmoils. Sector Ys Hozvepian is a pulsing journey, inspired by the early winter mornings of Montréals Fattal. Blue Shifts In Absentia is an extract of Oren Ratowskys and Hugo Boccas debut live set in the summer of 2014.
On the B side, pts untitled leads you on an entrancing tribal journey, unwinding your thoughts into dreamy pads, spiraling up as it goes. Finishing up the Furnace Series is Arabie 82s woozy, introspective Caravan.
