Bexu – Fractal Dreams EP (w. Whyt Remix) [Animism Records]
London-based electronic music outlet Animism leaps forward into a new chapter of its story and proudly presents the first vinyl release as a record label while maintaining its energy for organising events and for running its inspiring podcast series. Signed by local artist Cristi Jurcan aka Bexu alongside label head and resident Whyt on remix duties, “Fractal Dreams EP” invites the listener to a cosmic journey into the realms of dreamy minimal music, perfect to get your groove on in the early hours of the day or laid-back moments of the afternoon.
Aside from his numerous independent releases on Bandcamp and other online platforms, Bexu has some solid vinyl materials under his belt, delivered through 123BPM Records, KK, Welter, Stay Random Natasha, Arupa Music Limited and Museme. Well-known for his intense activity in the scene, Connor White aka Whyt joins in, completing the release with style. His previous collaborations include labels like The Lab, Duboka, Tzinah, Urban Midi and PhonicHouse1, to name just a few.
Side A opens with the deeply immersive vibes of “Starlight Baby” laying down a warm and dynamic drive elegantly designed with bright spiralling arpeggios, steady-paced drumming patterns and spacious breathing moments. The organic spin of all the elements is guaranteed to get the dancefloor moving in seconds. “Magnetar” takes a groovier approach with captivating atmospheres, bouncy leads and percussive roll-outs, smoothly complemented by equally hypnotic synth work. On the flipside, Whyt adds an extra punch to A1 with his remix, keeping some of the layers close to their original form while rearranging others in a more techy fashion, with a focus on the heavy kicks and a deeper bassline. A highly recommended 12″ right here for collectors and selectors alike!
