OL - Body Varial

  • Share
  • Moscow-based Oleg Buyanov, AKA OL, has previously released tracks on labels such as Error Broadcast, Astro Nautico and Faces. But he has also built a sizeable online following through a regular stream of ear-popping DIY digital freebies. Body Varial is arguably his most in-depth body of work yet. "Let It" serves as a hauntingly textured intro that eventually kicks into a stuttered pathway of off-kilter beats before trailing woozily on to "Combination." Buyanov chops up a sample from Wu-Tang's classic "C.R.E.A.M," but gleaming synths and lush percussion give the footwork-tinged track an alluring contemporary glow. "Keep Calm" and "Yes Lie" twist and turn, ferociously rollicking in the darkness between sending the listener into warm eye-of-the-storm lulls. Perhaps the most interesting track of the EP comes when OL teams up with Lapti to deliver as lush a ghetto-tech tune as you'll hear this year. The soulful samples echo into an infinite chamber of light and frantic footwork beats, a smooth ending to an intensely addictive journey.
