Lee Gamble - Mnestic Pressure (LP)
Mnestic Pressure is Lee Gambles first album since 2014 and his first with Hyperdub, a reset that sees a noticeable change in his sound and the concepts that feed into his music.
Lee says From Diversions 1994-1996 (2012) through to Koch (2014) - my music felt like I was dealing with signals from elsewhere - signals from the unconscious, sub-aqua, hallucinated, dreamt. Mnestic Pressure feels like their decoded offspring, a terra interpretation.
The title Mnestic Pressure comes from Lees thinking about how our contemporary memory is pressured, individually, but also collectively. We live in these strobing, visual times, like a constant subliminal advertisement but, also over the last few years the world seems to have become more and more dreamlike, alien, and parodic itself and there was this part of me that wanted to drag my music back from this Shangri-La, but fully drenched and infected by its ghosts.
Mnestic Pressure as a whole is a simulation of this experience; a flow of targeted information, through contrasting and quickly changing terrain, from one track to another youre dragged into a new space. The pressure to move is intrinsic to the flow of the album, one thing morphologically transforms into another, zooming in and out from wide angle to detail, reshaping into new forms at a speed Lees music hasnt before.
The music on Mnestic Pressure has a hardness, with a structure and melody that was sublimated in Lees previous LPs. It builds on his more recent experiments with more functional dancefloor forms. Here his hypermodern production and crunchy, dissembled beats feel like they could be malfunctioning holograms projected onto the hallucinated memories of his early work.
