Nathan Fake and Wesley Matsell are both producers best known for their releases on Border Community – Nathan Fake has been putting out psychedelic permutations on dance music since 2003 for the label, while Matsell recently released the blissful Total Order Of Being EP for them earlier in 2014. Cambria Instruments is a new label venture from the pair, and for the first release they have teamed up for a split 12″ of kaleidoscopic electronic sounds.
Nathan Fake’s contribution ‘Black Drift’ starts things off, an initially inauspicious tripping beat gathering momentum and morphing into a far-out piece of fuzzy house underpinned by sunken low-end rumbles. It’s the kind of brilliantly wide-eyed track we have come to expect from the producer. Over on the flip, Wesley Matsell’s ‘Bismuth’ is a darker affair, a tight techno rhythm holding things together while synths spin wildly. A highly expressive, lysergic trip and one of his finest productions to date. All in all, you couldn’t hope for a stronger start from a new label.
