Featuring a 20-minute improvised synth jam.
Back in 2015, enigmatic duo Thool released a three-track 12″ on Bullion’s DEEK label. Taking several left turns on a journey through balearic soundscapes and acid basslines, it sets the tone for the duo’s latest release Total Nobrum – a mixtape (with 12″ on the way) out now via Don’t Delay.
Operating out of a home-made flight-case packed with synths, pedals, mixers and a Roland TR-707 drum machine, and playing live guitars and keys, the duo squeezed into the Soho Radio studio to lay down a wiggy 20-minute live improvisation.
