If you're an avid follower of these pages, the alias of Rob Lioy, Access To Arasaka should be already familiar to you. Last year, this Rochester, New York based producer got picked up by Tympanik and Spectraliquid to bring us some of the finest, detailed, and crisp IDM to date. Access to Arasaka easily fits among the releases by Hecq, Gridlock, Kattoo, Architect and all of our favorite dark and experimental artists - it's almost as if Tympanik snatched Lioy from beneath the tight hold of Hymen's artist roster - and we applaud this mighty score. AtA's music is at once ethereal and technoid, glitching and cutting up the beats across a full atmospheric spectrum of imaginary places, with micro-programmed and delicate effects in all the right places. Following on the heels of Oppidan (2009), this new full length album, is a lot more fluid in structure, bending and folding the proteins of digital organisms through compiled code of neural networks. Inspired by the history and future of system hacking, the titles of the tracks, stripped from a networking I/O library written in C, feature data structures and function calls responsible for low level communications, running an algorithm of asynchronous transmission of information from Rob's brain to yours. I continue to enjoy this album over and over! Highly recommended!

Void is more of the ambient/IDM/glitched goodness that was found on Oppidan. The sound has evolved a bit here and I can hear more patterns and layers in this one. Seems like I always notice something new while listening to this album. Of course, the Gridlock similarities are still present and it makes me wonder if Gridlock would sound like this here today had they never disbanded. A must-have for your electronica collection.
