Victoria beatmaker okpk (a.k.a. Dan Godlovitch) describes his approach to making tracks as "using bass to warp the flow of time," which certainly seems like an apt description for his new prismatic 2010 EP, recently released on fellow Canadian label Low Indigo. Opener "Blacklight" is a bath of slowly pulsing and evolving textures anchored by shuffling rhythms. Supposedly composed entirely on the famed Elektron Machinedrum and Monomachine units, the song is able to seamlessly flow between purely ambient transitions and more beat-focused workouts over its six-minute runtime—giving "Blacklight" both an earthbound and celestial vibe.
