Album Notes
Isula is a collection of dubtronic experiments connected by a particular creative process and a minimalist aesthetic. The CD was created as a result of an experiment in which the members of RFCL took turns interviewing one another under trance like conditions. Samples were then extracted from the resulting recordings of these voyages through the subconscious mind and they were combined with carefully selected bass and rhythm loops to be worked into 12 shape shifting tracks. Clocking in at 1 hour and 14 minutes, Isula is a dub glitch confessional that rocks, bops, and grooves its way to the dark heart of RFCL. Transitioning easily from frantic beats to smooth whirly pools of sound, the album makes its way through the halls of ambient chill and comes to rest in the kingdom of dub step voodoo glitch.

Sound Meditation- Grab your Headphones!
From Aural Innovations #41 (October 2010)

Isula is hypnotic, ambient, minimal, repetitive, and it plays heavily on the drum and bass loop, experimenting endlessly with instrumental sound creation throughout its 73 minutes. Each of the twelve tracks has its own personality, each one is based on the same structure of drum and bass looping, but each one also offers difference between them, enough to feel that there is a motion of sound to the whole, rather than a stagnant repetition of the same thing.

It feels experimental throughout, be it a rather minimal ambient one, it is an experiment all the same, and it often treads similar ground to where Saturnia have strayed so often, yet Radio Free Clear Light rest on the minimal and the repetitive more so. To me it is a meditation of sound. Headphones are advisable, as is a quiet dark place to fully get the picture of the sound. Isula is a one of those CD's that will appeal to inner dancers and to the minimal drum and bass fiends. Take the inner journey and see where you end up.
