Warsaw based (Poland) Bartosz Dziadosz has been pretty busy lately. Coming on to the scene in 2008, Dziadosz peppered labels such as U-Cover, Audio Gourmet, Progressive Form, Time Released Sound, Rural Colours and Constellation Tatsu with his sound as Pleq. In the process he managed to collaborate with a number of artists, including Segue, Spheruleus, Marihiko Hara, Lüüp, and now Toulouse based (France) Philippe Lamy. The latter has been making a name for himself with releases on Nowaki, Dronarivm, and now, dataObscura, on which we find this particular collaboration, titled Momentum. On the album, multiple field recordings are drowned in micro-glitches, slow evolving tones, and deep rumbling drones. Forgotten landscapes dripping with rain are enveloped with evil, which only reveal themselves through the sonic fog of found sounds. The fourteen-minute title track is a haunting exploration within the noir-fi genre, which is dominated with soul searching spirits like Black Swan, 36, Ingenting Kollektiva, and Kreng. The release includes remixes by mise_en_scene, Yukitomo Hamasaki, and Machinefabriek. Overall the album creates an unnerving experience (I mean that in a good way), and is recommended as background soundtrack to all of your late night agitations.
