In the wake of a spread of releases Urulu arrives, the latest convert to the Kalahari Oyster Cult. “Transworld” is the American artist’s first gift to the diety. The track physically jitters into life as broken beats and classic samples give rise to an elusive melody of spaced out synthlines and expansive arcs. Shapes are a central theme of the EP, like the exotic curves, playful percussion and full bodied bass of “Precinct 9.” Urulu toys with assumed structures nowhere is this more evident than in the bizarre and brilliant medley of bleeps, honks, squeaks and bold beats that makeup “Groove Therapy.” Trippy samples introduce “Precinct 9 (Extremix),” a final psychedelic trip of Technicolor trance to bring the listener back from a journey known as Ex-Terrestrial.
