David August – Ouvert (Original Mix)
It is no coincidence that David August chose “Ouvert” as the title for his most recent release. The name is taken from an exceptionally complex German card game, Skat, for which there are a multitude of variations and “tricks.” Much like the card game, “Ouvert” is an elaborate amalgamation of sound that twists and turns continuously throughout its duration. Quite a bit more experimental than his last release, the track leads with sonic, 80’s reminiscent synths, then morphs into a rapid-fire percussion before deftly layering in syncopated rhythms and the same jarring, futuristic chords heard in “J.B.Y.”
“Ouvert” is available now, digitally, through Ninja Tune’s Counter Records.
