♫♪  Tomoki Tamura - “DSC House”

“DSC House” nails everything I expect from a proper B-side. It jams just as hard as the tunes on the flip, sneaks some perplexing sounds into its groove, and does so without wasting much time. Here. Berlin-based house producer Tomoki Tamura shucks his Quiet Air Gun EP of some of its chugging ambience in favor of a tipsy arrhythmia that trades hiccuped chords with a rag-tag band of sampled voices and and a Groan Tube’s residual echo. Tamura’s sense of play reveals itself at its full capacity, splattered with a sonic pallette as diverse as that which, as a kid, you might have stamped, spray painted, and smeared across the digital canvas of Kid Pix Studio Deluxe after completing a typing lesson. On the future-primitive spectrum, “DSC House” is the predominantly futurist answer to the more primal pluckings of Animal Collective’s Sung Tongs.
