Point B – Heart Of Matter [Frijsfo Beats]
It’s been a year since Point B has released any music he still gets busy in the studio, making his way in the real world as a sound designer. This ear and capability for engineering advanced sonics has always been evident on his production but for this album, Heart Of Matter he’s employed these skills in an entirely new and totally compelling way.
Soft stepping padwork provides the bed for many of the tracks, linking in and around the 2 step patterns he’s known for but the similarities stop there. This record sits closer to shoegaze-ey electronica akin to the likes of DNTEL and he pulls it off nicely, as soon as ‘Surely Now’ hits, the record takes on a whole new dimension and explodes spectacularly into bliss psychadelia. Suits those summer dreams we all like to think up as the promise in the midst of the air of spring blooms.
