Ramzi “Balani”

ramzi-balaniThis is soul music for robots.  Phoebé Guillemot’s productions as Ramzi always get into weird, opiate-laced zones but the underlying traditional Asian-inspired rhythms put this one into an even stranger place.  At times it’s soothing, but I can’t shake the feeling I’m being indoctrinated into a futurist, circuit-worshipping cult that lives underwater.  I realize that doesn’t make a lot of sense, but that’s what Guillemot wants.  Consider me sold.
