“Capable” by Recondite

"Capable" by Recondite is Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day'

Over the last few years Recondite has been making records for Innervisions, Hotflush, and Acid Test. Recently, has rejoined the Ghostly International fold with an EP that builds on the field recordings and pale, moonlit melodies of the producer’s breakthrough LP Hinterland. Named after the foreboding family of birds that includes ravens and crows, Corvus is a chilling listen bookended by two very different versions of a spellbound new track called “Capable.” While the original version is aimed squarely at shadow-drenched dancefloors, Ricardo Donoso’s remix mutes Recondite’s skeletal drums and restless rhythms in favour of richly woven strings, ghostly ambient grooves, and frost-bitten samples. It’s as if we’re drifting without a dance loop to light the way—caught in the web of a complex sound bank that’s cinematic yet strangely subdued.
