Experienced musician David Morley returns with an amazing sounding album that shows his sound is as great as ever. Classic electronic feel of a very high quality. Of note: vinyl was mastered by the techno legend Thomas Heckmann. And the sleeve design (vinyl) is also tops(retro C64ish command joy). This release has no weaknesses.
Favorite track: Re-volution.
Released on vinyl earlier this year via the De:Tuned label, The Origin of Storms is an album full of hypnotic rhythms inspired by the music of Conrad Schnitzler.
“[M]usic with a rich and textured techno depth. Inspired by Conrad Schnitzler, Morley draws on a soft and serene selection of sounds, swirling them into a soundtrack of storms.
A wonderfully expansive piece of work,Re-Volution orbits the listener. Sweetened chords stretch, bending overhead in this lilting lullaby. NAB is just a lofty. Wisps of sound float, bass lines tethering the track to this mortal plain. But not everything is brightness and soft and the clouds are looming. ORF is a darker entity, skittering percussion speckled with liquid synth. Thick banks of synth form, rolling in, doubling and reforming in the shimmering Radge before the final calm of Gematria. Blips and clicks soothingly echo, strings swimming as the sun breaks.
...Headphones on, lights off: immersion.” –Robbie Geoghegan, Igloo Magazine
