SFO016 – Point B – The Veld (released January 2012)

****see also: frijsfobeats.bandcamp.com/album/the-veld

“Richard Bultitude AKA Point B is an unsung hero of electronic music. He has quietly but meaningfully honed his talent over almost a decade of releases, for labels including SCSI-AV, Erratica, Combat Recordings and Frijsfo Beats. While he has sensitively shifted the shape of his work the whole time, his identity as a producer has never faded from view. The Veld is his third full-length album, and the first by anyone to be released on Frijsfo.

The immediately noticeable fact about The Veld is that it’s a Point B record. That’s why it can sound sharply contemporary almost without the listener noticing. Think about it, and it’s clear a number of today’s more desirable influences are there, but without a hint of gimmickry. Bultitude handles the weight of classic and revitalised dubstep with intuitive balance, populating the music’s customary space with snatches of fascinating, exotic texture. Elsewhere he remoulds the low-end growl and frigid rhythm composition of darkside neo-electro, or he adapts the sound Frijsfo has effectively made its own – a radically updated and remixed form of 2step garage.  Read More »

ASFO018 – Point B – Don’t Switch Off»

Frijsfo fans will know about Point B’s unusual charms – his music has been a fixture in the label’s catalogue since its inception. In January this year his album The Veld was praised across the board (Boomkat, Resident Advisor, XLR8R) for its strong fusion of Garage, Dubstep and electronica.

As a soundscapist Richard Bultitude’s talent is exceptional, creating rich sound worlds that are by turns inviting and unsettling. What makes him particularly special, though, is his ability to engineer such detail into uranium-tipped dancefloor weaponry.

The robotic propulsion of ‘Collective Origins’ and ‘False Economy’ wouldn’t sound out of place in a DJ Stingray set, resembling an extraterrestrial take Read More »

ASFO017 – Geiom / Point.B»

Kamal Joory’s latest outing for Frijsfo Beats revolves around some mind-bending rhythmic psychedelia. Inhabiting a blurred interzone, outside the borders of drum ‘n’ bass and footwork, are shape-shifting species of hi-hat and snare, that modulate between staggered half-time and rattlesnake-like vibrations. In a recent interview for the Liminal Sounds blog, he says he’s “always heard drums as melodies”, something that makes sense listening to his beats insinuate themselves around the rest of the music.

Though many Geiom productions catch the reflection of one genre or another, here his own individual vocabulary dominates. As on his Island Noise album, he takes UK dance music’s interest in the exotic and twists it in on itself. “Melting Reels” makes brittle 808 drums (provided by Boxcutter in an ongoing analogue sound exchange) dance to the tune of tabla-like percussion and a Read More »

AFrijsfo Treats 5 – Point.B»

The fifth in our series of free music from Frijsfo Beats artists is a real treat, and comes in the form of a live recording from one of Point B’s most recent shows. It was at Bristol’s legendary underground club Cosies, where he, DJ Oslek, and Sclist came together to launch his new album ‘The Veld‘. One of the seemingly few electronic musicians who actually performs his music live in a club setting rather than just mixing tracks on a laptop, this has been an important part of Point B’s creative process for years. Testing out new ideas, beats, and melodies on the fly, he takes inspiration from club crowds and sound-systems before tweaking and twisting them into full tracks later on in the studio.
