Two thrilling tracks and a bonus CD "mixtape" are three good reasons not to sleep on this. Young Australian producer Campbell Irvine follows up his 2014 debut with his second release for Infrastructure, 'Reunion of Two Bodies' The extended EP consists of two full sides of vinyl, plus a 50 minute continuous CD, entitled 'Terms Of Propaganda'. Following Irvine's initial discovery by label founder Function thanks to a chance meeting, the producer's relationship with Infrastructure has since blossomed. 'Reunion Of Two Bodies' marks a new chapter for the Berlin-based musician; his heavily weighted Modern World Music routed sound continues to grow, furthering him as an excitingly singular new talent. A-side 'Prism Split (A Scrying Song)' retains the characteristic intensity of Irvine's first release: a maelstrom of global influences and inspirations shaped and informed by Irvine's own classical training and musicianship. His dense and hypnotic arrangements invoke comparisons with pioneers such as Muslimgauze or contemporaries like Shackleton, whilst still staking out an individual sonic territory of its own. Field recordings and mixed-media samples all play their part in building the hypnotic story, and delicate drum programming and instrumentation show off Campbell's ear for timing and timbre. Seamless blending of each element and pristine production values are testament to his intuitive musical skill. B-side 'Reunion of Two Bodies' is the more club-oriented of the two tracks, offering a more jubilant yet suitably tense slab of end-of-the night resolution. Stripping away the Eastern influences, Campbell opts to explore dubbed-out, classic electronic realms, reminiscent of 'Artificial Intelligence' era Warp. Gracefully accented by its melancholic building melodies, Irvine's influences remain broad and firmly rooted in tradition, yet the end result is nothing but contemporary. As a special feature of the physical package, INF-018 also includes a CD 'mixtape' comprising 50 minutes of brand new and original material - 'Terms of Propaganda'. Drawing on the World Music influences heavily, 'Terms�' plays through like a lost soundtrack to a dreamy art-house picture - timeless yet futuristic. Fusing Musique concr�te ideals with modern Bass Music stylings - sampling voice and incidental noise alongside a rich percussive mass - the brooding work's drum sections recall those of the Apocalypse Now sessions by Grateful Dead players the Rhythm Devils. It's music to go up the river to. Invited to appear at Berghain last September for an Infrastructure Sunday-showcase, Campbell performed his first ever live set, hypnotising the crowd with 60 minutes of his mantra-like polyrhythmic compositions. The show left many inquiring if a larger body of Irvine's work would be released, and the results of over a year of writing and recording are laid bare in this mesmerising and beautifully executed work. With over an hour's worth of Campbell Irvine's original compositions to explore, INF-018 is a compelling introduction to a young producer who could yet become one of 2015's most exciting discoveries.
