Known otherwise as the missing third member of Boards of Canada, Optim’s works build on the same sentimental, atmospheric and detailed style and methodology yet he goes just that little bit further with this eight track EP entitled ‘Mercury’.
Building up from Cyclemagic, which is a fantastic introduction to the whole EP and taking us on a dreamy journey from one textured masterpiece to another, with epic tracks such as Thanet Well and Atlas 9, mixed in with smaller teasers to keep you waiting for more.
Extra credits for this release: Mastering by Mnemonic Studios, and superb cover artwork by our very own Anto whose artwork has appeared on many Kahvi releases over the years.
Favorite tracks: Cyclemagic, Atlas 9, Middle moon. Well, all of them really. If you’re a Boards of Canada fan, you’re going to love this amazing EP!
