Blamstrain lets his train pull into DISFOLD station, pulling with him a car full of ambiance ("Diacedita") before the darker tones of "Sight of Field" roll in. A low beat carries The Thing You Hate Me For Is Also A Part Of The Rest Of Me You Love" and this turns into the subdued dub techno of "Nyt Revisited." Meanwhile, "Frame Math" goes straight into space before crashing back down with a hip-hop rhythm, as "Revelation 21:1" sets forth a soundscape that lingers into "Spring/Summer." "A Song for Jonas" closes the album on a note of pure ambient that grows granular as the track ends. A lovely drifting work.

The sending orbs label has offered some real gems in their relatively short time, but this is the cd I've listened to the most. Unique and absorbing ambient dub techno with a striking sense of a kind of disconnected warmth and mysterious motion. The brilliant artwork and clever track arrangement encapsulates the wonderful journey this package provides. Highly recommended for those that seek a beautifully realised ambient musical experience.

Fans of Echospace/DeepChord and Basic Channel will certainly enjoy in this release. Everything that has a scent of dub and techno seems to be condemned as a sort of repetition of the work done by BC/Echospace, but "Disfold" has to offer something in addition - echoing ambient pieces blurred into dark city noise, including piano sequences and Slavic folk song, done in a really brilliant way. The closest match to this LP could be a sort of altered Echospace's "Liumin", the reduced version. From my point of view, this is a not-to-miss CD.

"Disfold" is a journey of muffled, dubbed ambient pieces, all aligned nicely on one underlying environmental track that carries the whole album further, like a train, evergoing and gently pulsing, almost progressive. The concept of the electric train is omnipresent, even in the artwork, and provides lots of subtle samples crafted into things like singing steel wheels, buzzing electricity interfering with the sound of a needle cruising on black curves, distant city sounds and voices hushed by electromagnetic engines, dancing power lines and of course lots of whooshing turned into purified noise.
Obviously all this doesn’t result in a cheery walk on the seaside, but despite all this gloomy roaring activity, the album manages to provide enough positivism and soul to make it plain fascinating rather than just fine sounding.
Spring/Summer is my favorite, sounding like a lost and found tape that just did not make it onto The Cure’s Pornography.
