Russian producer Hmot's musical landscapes are largely made up of found sounds and lo-fi filters. His Oneirology mini-album (available here) is a collection of seven tracks that processes psychedelic ambience through deep-house mechanisms, binding the field recordings of animal calls and running water to rhythmic structures. Record cut "Tartu"'s six minutes carry an aquatic quality with sampled wind chimes embellishing a steady four-on-the-floor kick. A house-inspired beat floats to the surface of Hmot's production as melodies are haphazardly pitched around and the track oscillates between astral bliss and swelteringly sour tones.
