Faex Optim: Cyclemagic
On Netlabel Day in mid 2015 the Finnish born Kahvi Collective netlabel issued a full 8-track EP, “Mercury” by FAEX OPTIM, an electronic artist currently residing in Edinburgh, Scotland. Known as the missing link of Boards of Canada, Faex Optim creates tracks as close to that original Boards sound as you could wish for.
The atmospheric soundscape he presents here with Cyclemagic is outstanding, launching with an sample of astronauts conversing, then taking the listener on a tranquil journey though a wonderful sonic space. The cover artwork (by Anto) is a very nice representation for this song, the first on the EP.
