Review: London based minimal producers Damian Daley and Danny Dixon have been steadily building up their catalogue of reduced rollers since 2013. As well as appearances on Sol Asylum, Tapes Of Old and SPORTS, their own OdD Music label has carried some of their most essential tracks. Waxing Gibbous continues the story with an assured selection of floor-primed workouts, leading in with the slender and seductive tones of "Tidal Wave." Things take a spikier turn with the heavy bass throwdown of "Zero Gravity," and then "Lunar Blueprint" stretches out across the B side in a rolling configuration of dubbed out incantations and insistent, needlepoint beats.
Review: The brothers OdD return to their self titled label after a two year hiatus with more of that refined, off-centre minimalism they do so well. "Obelisk" is an epic scraping the 12 minute mark with a tapestry of intricate beat design and spacious atmospherics - one to take the dancefloor to some intriguing places deep into the morning. "1M Pendulum" has a more linear house groove, and a plethora of subtle tweaks and wobbles rumbling away in the lower register. "Hotep" closes the B side with a spaced out groover that teeters on the edge of ambient, albeit with a nagging house groove holding everything together.
Review: Starting their 2020 with a bang, OdD swiftly follow up their D Construction EP with another trio of reductionist sure shots for adventurous travelers in the minimal realm. "Pythagorean" lives up to its name with an intricately arranged pattern of percussive threads creating a kind of geometry that crystalises around a sturdy minimal groove. "Do Re Me" features plenty of tripped out FX sweeps and swishy pads that give this roller a dubbed out flavour perfect for the after hours. "Solfegio" switches things up with a crooked broken beat template and some pointed chord drops that really lift the track into an intriguing new realm - this is classy minimal with personality so don't sleep on it!
