LEftfield chill with:NOMADsignal x Philocalist – Ten Bulls #Chill #Meditiation #Ambient #Electronic #LEftfield

Finally it’s Friday, though with a Saturday Parliament sitting not the end of the week. Need something restorative. Here’s NOMADsignal x Philocalist with the leftfield chill charms of Ten Bulls.

I didn’t know this but Googling, the track title Ten Bulls seems to be taken from, “Ten Bulls or Ten Ox Herding Pictures is a series of short poems and accompanying drawings used in the Zen tradition to describe the stages of a practitioner’s progress toward enlightenment, and his or her return to society to enact wisdom and compassion.” And indeed NOMADsignal says that the track is a meditative record, “leaving you at the door of inner Truth.”

Who knows where truth lies many days? But what I do know is that this is a lovely leftfield track. It starts with clattery found sound beats to set the mood. This is accompanied by a wonky sort of piano line giving it that space from normality. This combines into a satisfyingly chewy but contemplative whole. There are even some trance like banks of synths occasionally at work. And wordless vocals complete the package. This challenges as it soothes. Lovely.
