Aux Field has Imaginary Layers

Umor Rex introduces the new project from Georgian producer Rezo Glonti as part of its latest batch of spools – stream the opening track here.

Having been introduced to Mexico City’s Umor Rex via its archival trawls through the synth explorations of M. Geddes Gengras, it’s been a pleasure to dig deeper into the label’s endeavours within the realm of cassettes. Like the best tape labels, investing in Umor Rex is to open your senses willingly to a dizzying array of sonics from artists both recognisable and lesser known. This month sees Umor Rex ready a new batch of tapes, with Berlin-based project Driftmachine returning to the label for a second release alongside debuts for the B/B/S trio and Aux Field.

The latter is a new project from Tblisi artist Rezo Glonti and the title, Imaginary Layers, seems most perfect for the approach the Georgian takes on the basis of the opening track “Station III”, which is streaming below. Across its six minutes, Glonti hones in on a sound that is equal parts modern and redolent of ’70s┬ákosmische┬ámusic. Pre-orders for Imaginary Layers and the other tapes can be found at the Umor Rex site.
