Silat Beksi, Florian Meffert – Third Stream 004 [Third Stream]
The fourth pressing to arrive from Alex Font‘s underground record label Third Stream features an amazing collaboration between two maestros of the minimal genre, Silat Beksi and Florian Meffert. Packing four solid cuts, the 12″ will be available starting from February 1st in a limited number of 300 copies, so make sure you reserve yours before it runs out of stock!
Third Stream functions as a sublabel for Acmé and so far we’ve seen Alex himself dropping two steaming EPs while the third release was a Various Artists compilation which included tracks by Incolor and Olivian Nour. Joining the catalogue this year, Silat Beksi and Florian Meffert bring forward a rich minimalistic sound, flavoured with deep tech nuances and one breaks-infused composition, ready to take on any dancefloor worldwide. Now, let’s dive into the wax and explore the tracks in more detail.
Side A opens with “Secret-Do” unleashing a complex narrative designed with a steady-paced percussive core which undergoes several variations, numerous complementary microlayers and twisted effects. From time to time heavily modulated vocals come into play adding an eerie dimension while the background textures reveal a subtle progressive feeling. Next up is “Random Thoughts”, an uplifting piece which explores a deeper state of mind, continuing the journey with dubby aspects as long reverberated pads settle in along with the driving rhythm.
On Side B the tempo is raised a bit with “It’s Been A While” which delivers a polished deep house sound perfect for lazy afternoons while “Green Lights” switches gears, closing the wax with a solid breakbeat-infused composition inspired by the old-school aspects of electronic music. Here, the focus falls on the drumming as the other elements relentlessly rotate around the main layers with energy.
