OAKE - Auferstehung

OAKE’s music is easily placed on the experimental axis formed by Downwards and Blackest Ever Black.The Berlin duo’s music proceeds with the same funereal elegance as Raime’s and, like Kerridge, who collaborates with OAKE’s Eric Goldstein as UF, it swarms with plunging basslines born at a point where jungle, dubstep and drone collide. But OAKE are nonetheless a distinctive presence. Auferstehung (“resurrection”) often sounds like a contemporary classical ensemble scraping and thwacking its way through a score.
