Enigmatic Kiwi, RQ, makes his first but hopefully not last appearance on BMTM. Following his glitchy outings on Samurai & Auxiliary and his own fledgling label DAWN, RQ has brought us two beautifully textured pieces that strongly recall Logical Progression-era Good Looking Records.
The mutant child of Photek’s classic ‘Rings Around Saturn’, Shimmer blends classic jazz chords with glittering bells and pianos before injecting lovely, wobbly bass notes all over the shop.
A new definition of ‘slow burner’, RQ takes us back to the days when we were made to wait 4 minutes for a tune to pay off. Traces’ Autonomic opening styles eventually give way to a majestic, cruising amen, elegantly laced with cavernous pads and pitched vocals.
