To see collaborations in the IDM Genre is not common. The result of Arovane & Phonem is a match made in heaven the likes of your probably never hear again. The whole album is solid throughout. I am thinking Funckarma and there Solid State album. The melodies and harmonies are slowly introduced teasing the listener before turning full bliss its ethereal stuff combined with top notch beat programming with glitches that don't destroy the melodies' but complement them far to often in this genre the glitches can completely override the track and ruin the harmony Arovane & Phonem have avoided this striking a lovely balance between the two. This really is mind melting stuff throwing up nuances of pure ambience making the hairs on your neck stand up yet it still incorporates the industrial strength Glitch that Autechre were masters at yet they bring there own style to the fore with great results. I cant recommend this enough. The track Arovane (Fard) ENT:R is truly a masterpiece.

By themselves, on a scale from 1 to 5 they are both a 3,5. Arovane's sounds are often quasi-melow and washed out, and Phonem feels just too forcely glitchy and LO-FI. Toggether they are an allmost perfect measure, and make up a solid 4.5 on that same scale for the tracks done in collaboration.
