Album Review: Feeding the Machine by Binker & Moses
Fantastic, Based on 2 Critics
The Line of Best Fit - 90 Based on rating 9/10
On Feeding The Machine, the modular synths, tape loops and electronic sound manipulation of Max Luthert (sometimes bending the sounds generated by the duo in real time) are featured prominently. Rather than proving a clunky third wheel that messes with the duo's stage-honed telepathy, the added electronic interference and interpretation adds a rich layer of atmospherics and depth to the remarkably agile, muscular interplay and musical imagination of Binker & Moses. Feeding The Machine seamlessly blends throbbingly physical beat and riff science with an air of desolate introspection.
In 2015 Moses Boyd and Binker Golding emerged on the music landscape with a seminal album called 'Dem Ones' on Gearbox Records. It was an album that had as much to do with jazz's past as it did with hip-hop and grime. It was a melting pot of ideas and showcased what prodigious talents Binker and Moses were. They followed this up with the more prog-influenced double album 'Journey To The Mountain Of Forever' in 2017.
