DJ Python moves from the dark, claustrophobic polyrhythms that made 2020’s Mas Amable such a moody delight towards something far more warm-hearted and accessible with latest single Angel, a gentle 10 minute opus that skips merrily along on a broken beat, shards of sunlight glinting hazily off its soft corners and buoyant chords: perfect for sending you (or me, at least) off into the weekend with a smile and long overdue sense of optimism.
It’s a little unfair to post just a single track from DJ Python’s impeccable album Mas Amable, as it really needs to be listened to in its entirety to do it justice. Mas Amable plays out at a single tempo with seamless (and lengthy) transitions between the individual tracks, employing broken rhythms and hushed tones to create an atmosphere that’s both hypnotic and otherworldly. It’s really special, and reminds me of that incredible Voices From The Lake album from a few years back. ADSMSDP is an 11-minute epic that probably best represents the album as a whole, but I’d definitely recommend committing to the entire thing.
