Lush broken beats, Vancouver style.
Each track feels improvised, like a stream-of-consciousness jam. The style is rooted in ethereal '90s techno and IDM, but the sound crosses oceans and decades. "Nada," an unhinged live jam recorded in D. Tiffany's studio, Sweet Pup, has the dark psychedelia of late '80s Chicago acid house, while "Sedated" fastens itself to a more UK-inspired template, introducing rude bass bombs that threaten to capsize the groove. The other tracks have deft percussion, from the drunken sway of "Circlón" to the sensuous swing of "Succession," which is finished off with more of the moody pads you hear on D. Tiffany's best records.
There's a wealth of detail to chew on in Transfusión, manifested in odd, sinister vocal samples and the occasional bleepy melody. You get the sense that anything could happen in these tracks, which bend and contort like reflections in a funhouse mirror. It does all of that without losing the stoned vibe of the Vancouver scene that D. Tiffany and NAP call home, making Transfusión an intriguing release.
