released: van bonn & upwellings – bilateral kite
Bilateral Kite is the first collaborational ep of French multiinstrumentalist and sound creator Upwellings and label owner Van Bonn. It was a couple of years ago on a misty November day when both producers met in person for the first time. Right from the beginning a strong bond was set due to the love both share for dub and experimental vibes that call for the universal language of the world: music that comes from the heart.
Having released dub techno related vibes across a wide range of labels and being involved in countless music projects across genre and continents Upwellings is just the right partner to hook up with Van Bonn to envision and formulate joint journeys crafted in dub.
The first release of the two is called ‘Bilateral Kite’ and kicks off with the eponymous title track. Deep and functional, full of groove, musical chords and arrangement are the obvious parameters that catch the listeners ear. ‘Porthole’ is nothing less than the counterpart to the opener. Wide sounds and chords meet modulating noise and utterly deepness in sound creation to open a door to another dimension of (almost) beatless dub techno.
