about

Michal Wolski returns to Blank Slate to deliver another EP. Blank Slate 011 is a continuation of Wolski’s signature dubby minimalist strain of techno. The Warsaw veteran’s ability to summon thick hypnotic ambience makes his compositions instantly recognizable. Wolski’s patience and subtlety summons a nuanced version of power.

The EP begins with Midnight Train, which was released originally on cassette on Wolski’s own label Minicromusic. An airy mystique evolves into a melodic bliss, garnished with ride cymbals that seem to rain down from the sky. Magnitude is a return to Woslki’s proclivity for the psychodramatic. Broken percussion lays the foundation for a journey into the expansiveness of space. Sporadic harmonic jabs and eerie vapors bubble up from the earth itself. No Mind summons the power and density of an engine. Built on a foundation of chugging percussion, it commands a mirage of mechanical layers which flow in and out of focus. The EP closes with Eightfold Path; a hypnotic drum line propels the track through an atmosphere lush with the tension of pressurized air. Thunderous stabs roll in from afar until they’re right overhead — claps and groans provide only momentary relief from the storm.
