The mysterious Swedish producer Abdulla Rashim makes music that hums and sweats; the tribalistic, humid grooves evoking a certain kind of out of body trippiness. Perhaps it’s not insignificant that he puts on open air parties in woodland for his friends. But if his previous releases on Semantica (a sometime home of Vladislav Delay and Silent Servant) and his own label Abdulla Rashim Records demonstrate his commitment to pushing his wing of dark-hued techno, his debut album goes even deeper into the woods. The full-length format works in Rashim’s favor as his long form, atmospheric productions are allowed time to breathe and develop—even if they lead to precisely nowhere. And really, what’s creepier than that? Be the first to hear Unanimity, released through Rashim’s new label Northern Electronics, above. Let us know what you think in the comments.
Abdulla Rashim’s Unanimity is released on May 12th through Northern Electronics.
