While Ghouls Gone Wild was a breezy and warm celebration of classic techno sounds, MVX OPVL is a completely different beast. While the appreciation for the early and mid-90s techno sounds are still front and center; this time they are clouded by the deep reverb and repetition made famous by the Basic Channel/Chain Reaction labels.
Each track sounds like it is being drug along the bottom of the ocean, catching each bit of flotsam and jetsam along the way. Sounds bubble up and disappear while each bass kick sounds like you’d be wringing it out for hours and it’d still be dripping wet. This leaving a much more challenging listen for adventurous music lovers only.
That’s not to say MVX OPVL isn’t an entertaining piece of work; quite the contrary. When listening to it, especially on headphones, you are sucked right into the world of these sounds. Allowing your brain to fill in the blanks in the intricate soundscapes presented by the skillful hands of Ghoul Tooth. So if you are ready for this deep sea adventure just grab your scuba gear and click on the link below to begin.
