Propulsive techno solicitations abound on Ideoma, the debut EP from Oscean, a collaboration from Sebastián Galante, also known as Seph, and Andrés Zacco. The two are figureheads of Argentina's techno sound, with releases on labels such as Insurgentes, Echocord Colour, and Ilian Tape over the last decade. Galante and Zacco join forces for the first time with inspiring effects, moving forward with vast paces, unshifting footsteps, with uneven prisms of electronic rhythm. Its direct intent and crisp sonic detail conjure a cinematic and nocturnal drive, unearthing subterranean pulses that leave all in its wake. With Ideoma, Tresor presents a whirlwind of dense movement and cosmic energy that twists on percussive bends and distorting spirits. "Spiral" recalls natural phenomena, bound tight, with a rugged texture like no other, as flickers of sound processing suggest lift-off. The flanging "Feral" exudes a potent demeanor, wicked and unceasing. The ebbing melodics of "Spacion" hark back to '90s ambient techno and yet possess a rhythmic cut and thrust that navigates unchartered terrain. Transmuting beyond planet earth, further into the extra-terrestrial, Galante and Zacco mask fractal brush- strokes with hurrying rhythms. They smear primitive and sharp sonics, pressed with dizzying resilience. The nosediving FM synths of "Austraal" beckon a haunting trip, cloaked in a trance of motion and forever eschewing all prediction.
