Lee Gamble: “Emu”.

08 Oct 2012 — Henning Lahmann

Berlin-based label PAN continues its string of superb releases with Diversions 1994-1996 by British artist Lee Gamble, a mostly beatless, highly conceptual work of ambient and noise-leaning collages that is nonetheless closely linked to the dancefloor, consisting of sounds that Gamble solely derived from his mid-nineties collection of jungle cassette mixtapes. Both highly personal recollection and an hommage to the final convulsions of rave's heyday, the two uninterrupted transmissions are a very intriguing example of hauntology done right. Listen to the five-minute cut "Emu" below. Diversions 1994-1996 is out October 26.
