inally the french project celluloid mata delivers its first longplayer on ant-zen. after having released on various other labels and last year’s release 'acti-room' (act95) - with ultra milkmaids as well as the highly acclaimed 'escaped from room 7' lp, 'sable' is the consequent follow-up to 'la connectique' which had been released on hymen as a 12”.
'sable' offers 16 state-of-the-art rhythmic post-power electronics intelligent dance music. although repetitive and harsh beats dominate the record, 'sable' has more to offer than a simple power electronics album: starting off with doom frequencies and a nearly dark ambient track the record climaxes in technoid, high-speed beats and rhythms without losing track on the chosen path - modernist soundscapes with a scent of 'intelligent', slow motion drum and bass ingredients - ending in a somehow warm and relaxing atmosphere. variety is the magic word on 'sable'.
celluloïd mata have probably made their most interesting and differential work skipping through various styles, on the one hand deep, haunting drones interrupted by disturbing noises whereas, on the other hand, hectic, danceable beats and rhythms dominate the scenery. nevertheless, 'sable' must be above all regarded as a new standard for the intelligent dance music genre as well as a masterpiece for the rhythmic power electronics scene.
the only constant thing is change and .................. technology is deliberate.
