(New Single) Dimitar Dodovski- In Every Direction
Dimitar Dodovski’s output sits on the divide between pure ambient music and cerebral electronica. He has a style that borrows from strongly contrasting schools in electronic music production, yet is wholly harmonious: nervy disturbances from glitch and IDM-branded techno send a polyrhythmic electric pulse through the spacious pads and distant bass of dub techno. Dodovski’s new mp3 release from Shimmering Moods, “In Every Direction”, and its accompanying remix from the always excellent sound artist Porya Hatami come off almost as an exercise in testing the arbitrary boundaries between rhythmic electronic music and sound art. The glitchy spattering of Dodovski’s mix is more hypnotic than danceable, but even the trance cast by this track is rendered almost unrecognizable by Hatami’s highly imaginative remix, which saturates the track underneath a cloud of hiss and delay. Hatami also makes the interesting choice to insert some piano flourishes over his remix. Highly original and highly recommended.
