Besides Action Sports, the duo of friends and frequent collaborators Matthew Pepitone (alias Karmelloz) and Dylan Howe (alias Cplusplus) together form another two vital projects - Julius Theory and Portland Compressor. As Actions Sports they candidly combine their solo approach into sublime and multifaceted compositions, welcoming the listener with a great dose of warmth and pleasantly-colored sentiment. After dropping their first eponymous longplay via Barcelona-based label angoisse, Gin&Platonic is proud to present the duo's follow-up - 'Action Sports 2', which marks their most diverse and complex work yet.
Moderately reinterpreting the legacy of such as BoC or Biosphere while still staying up to date, the duo ambitiously joins the rank of rising contemporary ambient-oriented projects, recruiting from labels like West Mineral or Motion Ward. Beautifully balanced and elegantly composed, the music on Action Sports 2 seeks to erode the delimiters between pristine hi-fi digital dub, abstracted electronic glitches, and the smoked-out, but emotive haze of the American Pacific Northwest ambient. Being released in early November, the mesmerizing longplay calls for repeated listens while out on cold strolls through nature trails, or just leaving unpacked for a proper evening couch voyage with a thick damiana spliff in hand. Either way, Action Sports 2 offers enough thought space for the inherent and low-key rewarding post-summer contemplation.
