Format: Digital single
Ransel makes a stunning return to Beatservice Records, evoking exotic atmospherics via the heads-down rhythms of 'Taiga'.
The track is the latest composition formed under the relatively fresh Ransel moniker by venerated artist, Øivind A Sjøvoll. Perhaps best known for his work recorded under the Kohib alter-ego, DJ, producer and club promoter Sjøvoll has made a habit of surprising with his impossible-to-predict musical output, expertly drifting through stylistic barriers with each carefully constructed release. True to form, and in keeping with the Ransel catalogue to date, 'Taiga' is immaculately produced and primed to enliven esoteric floors.
Set over a deceptively slow tempo, throbbing rhythms and undulating synth bass drive exotic melodies across a stripped panorama, with Eastern motifs bursting into focus as harmonic guitar rhythms meander in the distance. Nocturnally charged and brimming with mystery, the magnetic groove captivates throughout as the arrangement bubbles and builds.
This compelling Ransel release is yet more powerfully evocative work from Sjøvoll and another intriguing addition to the evolving Beatservice roster.
