Betawave X / MX7 For Mysteryseven - Ghetto Hymns For The Earth Bound And Weary / A Patient Transit 2xC28The journey of S. Kidlat! Ocampo is a mysterious one with endless twists & turns, but with the result always swimming in neon and on the virgo tip. First we have BETAWAVE X and this eight piece songbook, "Ghetto Hymns for the Earthbound & Weary." The title couldn't be more fitting. Aspirations and public archiving make their move with funk-infused synth routes blazed on golden highways and leads that drip with sweetness and hope. Futurism is never far from the past and robotic vocals are simultaneously harmonic and clinical. It's in the groove that paths are traversed and the stars are brought into line. These are exaltations. Post Office Damaged Parcels Clerk, Totoy Monteiro, assents, "…this is some funky shit I ain't never heard before!"

MX7 for MYSTERYSEVEN is another vehicle entirely with Ocampo burning the candle from the other end, looking for new modes of public broadcast. Context is stripped down to the basics and reconfigured into machinistic daydreams. Academic in approach, "A Patient Transit" unfolds organically and uncovers heavy sonic truths. This is music that will integrate into your synapses, becoming a singularity within your fluid mind. It is living aural research. These simple ideas breed explosive results and each note, chosen with purpose, sings like an endless parade to the cosmos..
