‘Re_Calibrate’, the companion piece to Donoso’s 2018 acclaimed album ‘Calibrate’ continues to obfuscate any clear definition of genre or style and continues to push his music into stranger, more complex and extreme territories. Equal parts tender and twisted, cynical and honest, beautiful and obnoxious, ‘Re_Calibrate’ shines through as a major point in the composer’s discography – and provides a glimpse into the new directions being taken. ‘Re_Calibrate’ is a challenging listen; void of any trendy tropes or appeal for consumers of watered down, homogenized and dogmatic electronic music.
A truly honest and original work in an ocean of clones.
A great finial to the project. It's like a glimpse of sunshine behind the clouds at the funeral. Caretaker's funeral. Like a disturbing calm in the ruins after fire. It brings to mind Basinski's classics. C'est fini. 2097
Nocturnal, dubbed-out ambience - perfect music for late night city walking, or frictionlessly gliding through transit terminals. Fans of the ambient side of classic Basic Channel / Rhythm & Sound, or Deepchord will feel right at home here, though Space Afrika certainly have their own sound. Jascha Narveson
