“Multiverse” is one of those records that would probably be missed within this context, like any other very very good record albums not only from IDM spectra but from electronic music or any musical space: the music that is there but the unheard one. And similarly with some of the approaches of “Boards of Canada”, the record is dedicated to the evoking of exploration, the science and technology, the humanity.
It is always clear when a band matures in time and this is the case, eight years later in the Breathelast timeline, the new record is a mark or even a pillar of perseverance and insistence (perhaps even stubbornness) with revelatory results.
In comes GAIKA, a phenomenon clearly rooted in this socio-political ungenreficable musical stream. It is the most special fusion. Not quite Vybz Kartel’s auto-tune dancehall, nor Roll Deep’s and Boy Better Know’s solid state grime, his sound bridges the gap between strange rap and droney-electro.
