Textures from Berlin
After the minimal dance-floor supremos and a number of critically acclaimed tracks and EPs on labels such as Documenti Sonori, Multipraktik, Seta and his recent Gamma release on rednetic, Tommi Bass gives us a slice of something more cerebral in collaboration with BBSC of Berlin. The "Textures" from the title of this release can be found in the sound recordings made around Berlin weaved into the structures of the music. Based on the backbone of his unique minimal style the tracks widened out his palette of tones and textures, more expansive than Gamma yet retaining the same craft and quality in production.
Praise for Gamma
"Mr. Bass has infused his music with enough idiosyncrasies to make it a thoroughly listenable hour of sophisticated
electronic music." Leonards Lair
"Gamma is a record with many more facets than it originally lets on, making it as much a record designed for the brain
as it is for the feet." The Milkfactory
