Â You’ll come for the brittle beats, but you’ll stay for the supple curves. That’s Colongib and Octopus Inc‘s “Remix of Freeform Audio Tourism” in a nutshell. The track, the latest free monthly entry from the kracfive.com collective, starts with a crack of fire that could, alternately, be a radio signal coming into focus (MP3). What follows includes wood percussion, taut guitar strings plucked like bicycle spokes, and all manner of ticking, beating, thrumming goodness. But after a few listens, what becomes apparent is that for all the percussive elements, what distinguishes the track is its good old fashioned groove. There’s a pause and release at work that is downright addictive, and occasional rubbery sonic touches that bring the low-key funk to the foreground.
