P'Taah is a musical group
which you can probably find sorted under techno
. Their album Compressed Light is really cool and sublimely trippy
; it consists of ethereal
forms floating lightly through lanky rhythm
s with a distinctly drum n bass
feel. The d&b used is very organic
, and not quite like anything you've ever heard-- they've aren't d&b really, they've moved beyond d&b, i just mention d&b because it's the closest thing i can come up with. It's really more a jazz
album than anything else.. it's definitely hard to describe.
The album features both extremely creative mixing and actual musical validity, two things which are becoming increasingly rare these days.
Anyway if you're into ambient or other techno music i would recommend this band highly. They're great.
