Uchuu Saru – “Winter Road” – [El Otro Mundo Productions]

WinterRoad

 

This is Uchuu Saru’s (formely Uchuu, or Mark Nordstrom) 2015 mini-album released by the Bay area El Otro Mundo Productions label. The style is cinematic sounding reflections on the season of winter. Uchuu is a house/techno DJ so the production style on this record was surprising. Closest and also fruitless comparisons would be Boards Of Canada or David Bowie’s more experimental ambient tracks, but with a more modern and sparse beat production. This is both ambient and subtle jazzy experimental electro dub music that paints subtle pictures such as walking along an icy road on a cold morning when the sun descends. It’s refreshing to hear orchestral chord arrangements on the tracks. Consider this ambient and electronic dub released in cinescope.
