Blackwater starts it's third cycle with it's tenth release with an EP from London based duo, Ossa di Mare. A record that has come from the dark internal depths of a carnal energy between the two artists that make up duo, constructed around the idea of hallucinogenic experiences induced by dimethyltryptamine. Each track relates to a understanding and connection throughout the experience.
B3. Asphyxia (Elle remix)
The Ep opens with “Heautoscopy” A hallucination in which one see's one's own body from a distance. A very intense piece with influences from psychedelic music and pitch dark
tones all well balanced with a proper veteran approach.
On the same side “5 - MeO” follows- A chemical compound within dimethyltryptamine that let's you experience a near death sensation. Calm and relaxed pad lead through the
percussive sounds in an infinite story.
The B side comes with first track “Asphyxia” -to show the dark face of the Ep. The entire piece is expressing the condition arising when the body is deprived of oxygen, causing unconsciousness or death. Claustrophobic echoes and reverberated atmospheres for five
minutes of deepness.
“Hypnagogia” - Is the experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep: the hypnagogic state of consciousness, during the onset of sleep. Once again the main
concept of the duo dominates into instruments, all well mixed and calibrated to the end.
The Ep closes with Elle’s remix of “Asphyxia”. A perfect closing track, ethereal dark loop.
