Obliq residents, Freq Modif present their debut release here with warm and fuzzy de-tuned oscillators that hail in a warmer and brighter season. “Larkspur” is a homage to the all-encompassing deep blue Colorado skies and the fresh smell of passing afternoon rain glittering on the wildflowers of the Larkspur meadows. Pure analog sequencing and triggering at its best harkening back to the synthesizer masters of the 1970’s but with the bounce of the kick drum and the sparkle of hi-hats of the 808. Truly a gem of an electronic piece.
The b-side “Interstates” gives you a synthetic taste of a night drive along on the Colorado autobahn. Traveling back and forth between studios on the high-speed corridor of I-25 inspired this amazing new track of psychedelic ambience and pulsating dub. The fresh smell of rain evaporating on pavement is splashed by the roar of passing trucks and freighters along the journey. The sound of locusts great the passing cars. Both tracks recorded at the Larkspur Facility.
Released in 2002 on 7″ red vinyl. 500 pressings with 88 reserved for the 4213 Box Set.
NOTE: HD download available on 4213 OBQ-09 release.
