(Twenty Hertz)

Look no further than this meaningful record when choosing your favourite “drone statics” by talents risen from virtual obscurity. With “All that was”, Paul Bradley not only establishes himself as the best trance-inducing composer currently at work but I strongly believe he’s the most appropriate heir to the mantle of low-frequency main artist that used to belong to Lustmord in his beautiful (…and gone by now…) past times. This album hoists that big heavy stone that closes access to your hidden soul cavities, never exacerbating the sense of fear, instead projecting an apparent desperation to a quest for sub-lunar ways to escape the lethal blows of life’s many atrocious mediocrities. Paul’s wonderfully unpredictable sounds establish a liaison with your strained nerves, making your whole system work much better. It’s a collection of stratospheric loops indicating the only available path to a much needed sprinkle of emotional rain.
