Second object of devotion to emerge from WORSHIP's dawning catalogue, "Totem Society" sees label founder Đ.K. joining forces with Italian producer Sabla (DISK, Knekelhuis, Gang of Ducks) over six cuts exploring the confines of their shared sound mystique. Flush with primitive drums, hazy temple-like atmospheres and eartitillating textures to wade in, this six-track voyage across ancient worlds and newfangled electronic potentialities elicits visions of fulfilling serenity and troubled oracles at once. Drenched in ominous reverbs and delays, "Ocra Flat Lands" is a slo-burning hybrid of tribal ambient and leftfield dub, like a distant nod to gamelan and its attached ritualism but steeped in beds of hypnotic oscillations. The further sedated "Dove" cuts a more rhythmic passage across Đ.K. and Sabla's submerged sound designs, beating a time-honoured cadence with hints of rainforestial synthpop and myrrhscented uplifts interlarded. Dwelling the nightly interzone betwixt murky post- Memphis hip-hop tropes and moon-lit electronic hoodoo, "O" is an ode to the darker fringes, easing us in a world of misty ambiguity and spine-tingling spook. Cranking up the tempo one (slight) notch, "Nubes Shepherd" engineers a trip-hopinformed mix of heterogenous essence, constellated with oddball, radar-jamming interferences, 303-marinated elliptic moves and brooding, woofer-busting bass from the depths. A pristine slice of liquid dub befogged by opaque veils and deceptive mirages of sound, "Waterflow" is aqueous by nature but has that raging incendiary power of subjugation brewing at any moment. Final number "A Minute" summons processed steel pans and kalimbas, wood blocks and congas in a wonkily assembled, yet thoroughly mesmeric ballet of sorts that certainly lacks no soul and magnitude.
