Ada Kaleh Romania 007 Review – Nedeslusit in Amurg EP

AK007 Front meokobanner

It is that time. Yet again, another masterful release is on its way from genius Romanian producer, Ada Kaleh. ‘Nedeslusit in Amurg’ is the seventh release on his up close and personal outlet named after himself, Ada Kaleh Romania. A vinyl only label, with a desire to enforce the full package with each release. From the sound, down to the artwork, simultaneously aligned with the stories behind them. For this release artist Anca Buzilan has made her mark with two detailed images, one on each side of the sleeve telling the tales of the music.

 

Taking up the whole of the ‘Sunside’ is ‘Nedeslusit in Amurg’ inspired by the whirling dance of the Sufi Dervishes. A physical form of meditation, an aspect that reflects within the sound with hypnotic loops and choppy vocals. After several days trapesing the desert, the sun begins to set (amurg; in Romanian) and the dervishes gaze in to the distance to find an image of a woman holding a blue pot of water. Flickering in and out of focus, a ‘Nedeslusit’ (Mirage). All senses vanish and the Dervishes’ are lost amongst the whirling dance, in ‘Amurg’ they remain. The image accompanying this side shows the dervishes stranded in the desert as they realise the mirage.

On the ‘Moonside’ there are two interpretations of ‘Morgana Avidoma’. Morgana representing the female in the image, rolling, off the bat rhythms proving her capability to remain, whether in the distance or in front of your eyes. There is a sense of confusion, but the beat keeps coming back, two tracks that would sit well in a mix. Morgana herself features on the artwork of the ‘Moonside’

Kaleh, is known for his ability to curate atmospheres of an extraordinary variety, sometimes the subtlest of tones go such a long way due to his attention to detail. Never short of magic, with his special touch. Quality of the highest order, for listeners who will immerse themselves in minimalistic and stripped back sounds with a touch of class.

She is always there, but only for us to see.
