Basic Mind - Grotto EP

Cosi Cosi

£9.00

12" Vinyl


The first release on the Perth imprint Cosi Cosi, Basic Mind's Grotto catalyses some of the great innovations of both Continental and Atlantic analogue techno; 80s formalism, late Drexciyan funk, darkroom acid; and indeed is one of Australia's purest sources of that ultra-orthodox, hardware-based sound.

At the same time, its dancefloor liturgies and moments of Balearic reflection make Grotti a cryptic and salient permutation of Australian dance music values in 2016. 'Grotto' is thoroughbred Meganesian techno with a boisterous earworm bassline, recalibrating to mirage-perfect funk in the track's close.
