'Sun Tzu' is out on aLOLa Records tomorrow
Our second exclusive track premiere today comes to you courtesy of aLOLa Records, as iDJ brings you a first chance to hear Mum, a track from label owner 16B's forthcoming fifth studio album Sun Tzu, which is out tomorrow (Friday 27 November).
Omid Nourizadeh AKA 16B should need no introduction: he's been a fixture on the UK dance/electronic music scene for the past two decades and has appeared in iDJ many times over the years, both on his own and as part of SOS with Desyn Masiello and Demi. Sun Tzu, though, is an album unlike any other we've heard from him before.
Last year's Silenciety long-player provided something of a signpost, as Omid moved beyond the deep and progressive house with which he made his name to explore a wider range of musical territories from ambient to electro, indie and rock. Now, on Sun Tzu, he delves even deeper into ambient and downtempo territories, while also venturing into leftfield electronica on cuts like No Words, Last Try and Where Do Whales Hide?. But there are nods, too, towards his more club-oriented past – as on the fairly self-explanatory London Boy (In Detroit), for instance.
Our favourite track on the album, though, is Mum – an ultra-deep late night excursion with a dubby feel overall and something of a Yellow Magic Orchestra-ish tinge around the edges. See what you think…
