Samuel Rohrer - Codes Of Nature [Arjunamusic Promo]

Put out on the circuit via Arjunamusic on February 10th, 2k23 is "Codes Of Nature", the latest full length album effort by Berlin-based Samuel Rohrer who's pulled off more projects and collaborations throughout his nearly 18 years spanning release career than some labels have actually released within a similar timespan. Now back with another menu of six brand new pieces rolled out over a total of roughly 50 minutes playtime Samuel Rohrer presents a musical menu ranging from deep and stripped down late night Downtempo vibes to be found in the opening piece "Body Of Lies" followed on similar, yet slightly more meandering, Electronica-infused path by "Scapegoat Principle" to "Forth Density" which provides carefully layered and low key jazzed out percussion grooves for ChillOut dancefloors which might go well along Bugge Wesseltoft's 'New Conceptions Of Jazz' project vibewise. Furthermore "The Banality Of Evil" fully indulges in soft, enchanted Ambient textures and hovering, ever cascading melodic polyrhythms, the more agitated Future Tribal cut "Talking To Nature Spirits" is as enchanted, otherworldly and dreamy as its title suggests and the final "Resurrection", despite being obviously percussive, is as close to classic mid-90s Ambient transmissions as it gets on this album and therefore probably our personal favorite out of the six cuts on here. If you do own a single record by the famed, yet more krautsy, Moritz Von Oswald Trio you might well appreciate "Codes Of Nature" for a reason.
