laminar flow - expected may
For the best part of 10 years, For Those That Knoe has maintained its position as a platform for obscure and under-represented artists of the recent past, (re)introducing their music to the world in the form of stories told in chapters and specially crafted albums.
Taking a slightly different tack, For Those That Knoe is looking to the present rather than back in time with a first LP outing for Slovenian producer Vid Vai.
Vid Papez has had a succession of quality EPs under his belt, originally classically trained on violin, flute and guitar, his sound has developed into a lush mix of catchy breakbeat rhythms, precise intelligent percussion and other-worldly melodies and soundscapes.
In constructing Laminar Flow, Vid has taken inspiration from fluid dynamics and coupled it with early influences in the form of UK bleep, IDM and breakbeat sounds. The result is a timeless piece of liquid-smooth sonic art that is strongly relevant in 2022 whilst also giving a gentle nod to the pioneers of the deeper end of the rave scene.
