'Body' is the debut long player from 20 year old Darling Farah. Born in Detroit before relocating to the United Arab Emirates he is now in London, where in 3 short months this innovative debut was written. Deep, sophisticated and expertly reduced 'Body' showcases an artist striding forward at a rare pace, able to create almost overwhelming emotional dynamics, his is a world of daring introversion, increasing possibilities and resistance to classification. Traversing the Techno landscape with beautiful continuity the album navigates from beatless ambience, pulsing rhythms and machinist teutonics through dancefloor beats and cyclic 4/4 to Detroit soul and dub techno. Cohesive and effortless it will undoubtedly solidify the hype around it's precociously talented producer. Fusing the purist aesthetics of his native Detroit with mechanical soul, metallic sounds and atmospheric mysticism 'Body' is an album brimming in sensation, tempered skill and emotional mastery. Spacious voids filled with decaying reverb contain sparse arrangements, machine-like characteristics and subtle euphorics. Dream-like textures expand and contract in three dimensions, illuminated with delayed pyrotechnics they contrast with taut rhythms and pneumatic grooves. Lucid yet hypnotic, sonic memories grow and recycle organically as delicate changes and subtle variations on a considered palette focus their effect on the mind while effortlessly moving the body.
