Bovaflux: 2002

[d]-tached, 2002

With old-school melodies and a sound reminiscent of The Black Dog, Bovaflux’s debut mini-album is immensely satisfying. These tracks are lush with layers of pure, full sound. “Trimuta” glitters with cascading electronics over a bassline that sounds like an ’80s dance track. “Falling” starts as a soft ballad, but a jungle breakbeat and sub-bass keep things from getting too melancholy. Although the sounds on these tracks are all similar, Bovaflux shapes distinct songs with his limited palette. There’s simple beauty at work here.
