Z'ev / KK Null - Extra Space, Extra Time [Brombron/Korm Plastics - 0000]

“Extra Space, Extra Time” brings together theses two highly respected and often rhythmic obsessed experimental artist to create an approachable and often entrancing album which ploys the middle ground between each parties distinctive sound.

On offer here are six tracks  that run between just over the five minute mark to just over the thirteen minute mark a piece. And as I said in this reviews opening paragraph there really is a fairly even mixture of both parties sound here- you have Z'ev’s detailed and textured layers of percussive matter. Then you have KK Null’s throbbing and edgy synth textures, and his hypnotic and psychedelic electro beat elements, and the odd hint of subtle yet atmospheric field recordings. 70 to 80 percent of the tracks here are mid-pace to fast rhythmic based, sure a few tracks open or end with more clunking and slowly forming matter, or  a heady mixture of atmospheric synth textured and  subtle field recording- but more often than not they grown into dense atmospheric, entrancing and detail rhythmic work-outs.

Both Z'ev and KK Null have dabbled in more noisy bound moments in the past, but really there’s nothing too noise or extreme on offer here. The album is really all about building impressive and detailed rhythmic work-outs that have a highly atmospheric, accessible yet experimental sonic depth to them.

All told this is a very worthy, dramatic and consistent collaboration, and it will be of interest to those who enjoy both Z'ev and KK Null work. But also those who enjoy hypnotic, atmospheric and experimental tinged rhythmic music that is often quite approachable too.
