Bastien Keb - Organ Recital [Gearbox Records]

Put out on the circuit via Gearbox Records on July 22nd, 2k22 is "Organ Recital", the second album produced for the label by Bastien Keb and his fourth overall since his longplay debut in 2k15. With a total of 15 new songs rolled out over a total playtime of 40 minutes the British artist delves deep into a world of tender, fragile and heartfelt Future Soul that follows the well atmospheric, trippy and enchanted opening ambience of "The World Creaks Pt 2", partly interrupted by instrumental, slightly warped and off-kilter dancefloor bangors like "You Alright, Mike", jazzed out, highly urbanized TripHop cuts like the well recommended loop affair that is "Stillmore" whereas songs like the smokey "Glass" provide a proper, intimate take on Leftfield Pop x Backpack Folk for lovers whilst tunes like "Joyeux Noelle" or "Ambers" even showcase score'esque qualities in Mr. Keb's musical work. One for those that still hold labels like Lex Records or Anticon. in high regard, this.
