Ambient techno exponent A Sagittariun fires off another full-length album transmission on his own Elastic Dreams label. Elasticity is the Bristol-based artist's second long-player and the follow-up to his acclaimed 2013 debut, Dream Ritual (EDREAMS 001CD/LP). Dream Ritual firmly established A Sagittariun as an artist whose musical chops and integrity operate largely outside of the mainstream, and as a producer who chooses to put the music firmly at center-stage while opting to remain relatively anonymous within the music scene. Elasticity marks a return for A Sagittariun follow a trio of singles in early 2015 (for Hypercolour, Secretsundaze, and Elastic Dreams), and fans of the slippery and elastic sounds that hallmarked his debut album will not be disappointed. As A Sagittariun explains, "Elasticity was recorded over quite a short period, but the sketches and ideas have been germinating for some time, so sonically it's very coherent and consistent and moves in a way that I personally like albums to move in, with a narrative and flow that holds you right to the end. The recipe for Elasticity was always to be malleable and pliable with the sounds and tempos; for me it's all about the listening experience, and creating a landscape and a world within that one can really get deep into and explore, it's optimistic and progressive music for the head, heart and feet. I really do advise the listener to don headphones and take the trip with me." Over the album's tracks, and a supporting set of "Transmissions" from the likes of Robert Anton Wilson and Terence McKenna, Elasticity delves into a myriad of textured sounds and pliable rhythms, touching on ambient, industrial, breaks, and dub influences. CD includes three extra tracks.
