Focusing on slow paced bass studies and synthetic dub textures, surrounded by collaged and looped field recording environments, RSE shrouds sound over image to target the sector of brain where fear supersedes rationality – the imagination.
Following a still-ongoing series of reissues of the earliest, previously tape-only releases from Dominick Fernow’s Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement, this long-in-the-making new album proper is an epic 80 minute set featuring additional production and “sound on sound processing” from Silent Servant, a remix from Substance and mastering by Paul Corley. It’s by far the most ambitious and far-reaching Rainforest dispatch, taking that artificial, tropical humidity as a starting point before heading deep into a kind of textured ambience
‘Ambient Black Magic’ moves away from the extreme saturation of those early cassettes and the industrial environmentalism of his previous album Green Graves and is described by the label as ‘Fear Dub’ – which is essentially the perfect encapsulation of the deep sense of paranoia contained within.
