Taavo – Observation EP #downtempo #electronic #techno

A couple of days ago we had Czech artist Taavo and the title track from the Observation EP. It was so nice I thought we ought to explore the whole EP.

Observation has a very organic feel. With woodblocks, guitar and drums. I’m sure it’s all digitally done but the feel is of something quite human in scale. It’s a very pastoral techno sensation. Contrast takes a similarly restrained approach but with a more obvious techno bent. It’s driven by synth chords and an almost techno drone to it all. It’s gently shifting patterns of techtonic plates.

Synergy contrasts almost strings with a warped deep bass. Melody is eventually offered through adroit synth lines. But the fuzziness of the track didn’t quite work for me. The final track is Mine. More obviously ethereal at the start than the others this changes tack after 2:00 to become the most obviously techno of the quartet. It picks up pace as it goes and offers wonderful anticipation.

A great EP.
