Dolby's ON, the new Mansions and Millions release from Montreal experimental dynamo Bataille Solaire plays like a polyrhythmic primer on the avant-electronics of the last two decades. Here the frantic insistence of Drill 'n' Bass, Plunderphonics' playful sample profanation, Glitchy instability, classic IDM percussion and up-to-date Vaporwave sonics are melted into a novel composite and extruded into the massive edifices of “Boul,” “B.M.B.S”, and “Lapino Clubb Mix”, each track's structural coherence serving as a stage for the acrobatic feats. As a respite from these monumental constructions, the tape closes with the ambient textural exploration of “Hyper Drive” and the spacey, pleasantly metallic drift of “Hom Dans Le Ville”.
