SKU 37-FTS 006
Rimarimba was the project of Robert Cox from the UK who released several cassette and/or lp releases in the 80s. Until now, none of his work has been reissued; I have one of his original albums which I’ve treasured since I found it 35 years ago! His work as Rimarimba is a cross between systems music/minimalism and spacey/trancey sounds.
This is really superior stuff and if you sound intrigued, by the short description I gave it, you are going to love this!

For Rimarimba's 1984 album On Dry Land, Robert Cox advances along the terrain explored on Below The Horizon. It's an enchanting album, one which, at times, seems to comment on its own practice; a picture of everyday life in the hobbyist's, or part-time musician's, recording studio. Some moments point towards the tourist-explorer aesthetic that would eventually coalesce under the banner of Fourth World music. Other moments where Cox seems to be channelling an otherness, a kind of hauntological reverie, the feeling of music that gives us an uncanny sense of déjà vu. Writer David Keenan’s description of Japanese naïve-pop group Maher Shalal Hash Baz's music, that it "feels like sketches of places where we once were, places now made poignant by our absence" feels like an alternate take On Dry Land.”
