The Kosmische style is defined in large part by the work of Ash Ra Tempel, Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and Popol Vuh, who were featured on the 1972 Ohr Records compilation, Kosmische Musik.
Boddy’s new album originated with a track that he created for the Bluetech compilation album Portals, which featured music, by a wide variety of artist, that reflected their Kosmische music heritage. From this starting point, Boddy decided to create a full album in the style.
Here’s what the label has to say about Axiom:
The six tracks on “Axiom” certainly reference Boddy’s musical roots with its pulsating sequencer passages that hark back to the Berlin School sequencing of Tangerine Dream, most especially on the powerhouse track “Nitro”. The self referential track “Boddy Love” is an in joke with a nod to a classic 70’s Klaus Schulze album and features a gorgeous melodic sequence line that steadily grows to a beautiful climax before gently fading into the distance.
Elsewhere “Icon” with its subsonic bass throb and veil of orchestral strings climbs to a sonic summit before crashing down to the sublime and emotional piece “The Fallen”.
Closing out the album the title track bookends the albums opener “Omicron” with a slice of Synthwave that has it all from analogue sequences, vintage drum machines and soaring chords for an emotional, joyous journey.”
