"Immune <http://ghostly.com/releases/immune>" CD release party!

Alan Abrahams (aka Bodycode) is a restless spirit. His tracks have itchy
feet and busy brains, chugging along at a brisk clip while cramming in
enough rhythmic detail that make one’s head spin. Alan grew up in
post-Apartheid South Africa, where polyrhythmic percussion first entered his
bloodstream; he then lived in Portugal for years, sweating it out in
Lisbon’s club scene while absorbing the sounds of electronic dance music and
releasing tracks via numerous aliases. Three years after releasing 2006’s
The Conservation of Electric Charge on Spectral Sound, the man known as
Bodycode moved from Lisbon to Berlin. Now, Teutonic house music’s taut,
jacking rhythms form the core of Immune, Alan’s new full-length as Bodycode.
Immune opens with the super-sub-bass pulse and cool atmospherics of “Meaning
and Memory,” a track which already sounds worlds away from Conservation’s
tech-y clicks ‘n cuts. Following “Meaning and Memory”’s sleek efficiency is
“Hyperlight,” a galloping, end-over-end beat chasing endlessly after an
elusive vocal sample (“get up!”) that always seems one step ahead of the
kick drum. Vocal samples humanize Immune’s technological edge, providing
heavy-lidded narration on lead single “What Did You Say” and lending the
click-clacking “Imitation Lover” an old-school diva charm.
Immune’s closing moments are some of its loveliest, as the title track
dresses up its drum-machine beat in chillingly distant piano chords and some
low-slung gospel harmonies. Fittingly, Bodycode’s biggest musical step
forward features a chorus of baritones warbling, “Nothing in this world is
immune from change.”*
