Song of the Day: 2/17/09 Mux Mool - Nausican

 

"Nausican" really exemplifies the strength of sparsity in music - Mux Mool's instrumental hip hop centers around four or five impeccably tweaked textures, as opposed to, say, twelve muddled ones fighting for space. A gypsy-esque vocal trill loops to becomes the exotic backdrop behind a classic, authoritative drum beat, while discretely detuned keys fluctuate in the empty space. Like the cleanest of DJ Shadow tracks, there isn't anything fancy here - just a thoroughly entrancing beat that rides the strength of superhuman attention to detail. Score another victory for the ever-invigorating Moodgadget label, purveyors of some of the finest electronic and hip hop music around.
