Harrison Phinney the older I get, the more I appreciate what I’ll call ‘purity’ in music. if I want tonality, give me pipe organ drones. if I want rhythm and texture, give me pure polyrhythmic percussion. not sure if this makes me old or simply jaded. regardless, the drum transcends everything: time, space, ego, culture. riyl joão pais filipe, mohammed reza mortazi. Favorite track: Karnal.

TigerTorakio Careful, quick, slow, stumbling. All at once. With its competing layers of movement, this Proteus of an album engages in constant sleight of hand. As you focus on any part, others have already slipped past, into the depths of your ear, where they intend to do who knows what. Favorite track: Karnal.

mitch reynolds Uwalmassa's best yet! Haunting and disorienting tones, but always grounded with lively and evolving percussion. Uwalmassa/DIVISI62 are really carving out their own lane in electronic music while sounding like no one else, huge respect. Favorite track: Rantas.

about

Vinyl: honestjons.com/shop/label/Mana

Uwalmassa shape their relationship with various forms of musical heritage into technical and stylish forms on Malar, marrying acoustic sonics with a contemporary outlook that reflects their Indonesian identity; evolving, mutating, and scavenging traditions to draw parallels to dance music, and to test the adaptability and flexibility of those sounds.

Here the collective go dark and deep in their first album-length collaboration with Mana, casting long shadows and moving snake style at speed across nine tracks. Using a mix of synthetic and acoustic instruments - the texture of Malar feels enigmatic, occasionally industrial, and the result magical in its mystery and fluctuating impact.

Uwalmassa is the name with which DIVISI62, arts & music collective from Jakarta, Indonesia, perform and produce music.
