The genesis of a UMA track is an exhausting process with a married couple who each have a unique vision that does not always coincide with the other. How they managed to record a full album, we honestly don’t know. The friction is audible, the result homogeneous nevertheless. Technical skill and quality of production alone are impressive, the equipment used every collector’s dream. What really stands out though, is the pop sensibility within the context of contemporary experimental electronic music. One would have to dig deep to find something sounding this fragile in the bass-prone spectrum. Drone and Ambient meet UK Bass at times, Portishead at others. Voice and machine fuse on analog 16 track tape in UMA’s Berlin home which they remodelled to function as their recording studio.
