For his debut on the sorely missed Source Records, Johan Skugge discovers OBJECTS AND BUILDINGS, a micro-house album that exemplifies the best aspects of that genre. "Pacific" has a warmth to its clicks, keeping a steady kick, while the gurgles of "Block" slide into your subconscious like honey. "4:am" is more on the industrial side, though still mellow and low-key, but "Semi" brings the shimmer back in. "Slope" is spare in its composition, but "Tuple" gets back to the rhythm and "Eeg" brings in a slight darkness in the background. "Scope" fills out more for a fuller sound, while the more granular "Rev" skitters along the floor until the warmer chord help it rise, until "Module" closes out the album once again with a cooler, more minimal composition. Bears repeated listens.

If you happen upon this web page and see this review, then I highly recommend that you buy this album with no hesitation.

"Objects And Buildings" is a fine album that flaunts its brilliance with sonic subtly.
Each track is a journey of precisions through various moods and textures.
The micro-house rhythms give each track a backbone. They blend well with all the elements and ultimately endow the songs with a versatilely not commonly found in albums of this esthetic.

I think a new genre has been defined by albums such as this one, and I dub this genre "Dinner Techno". Other Albums that fall into this categorie are "Strata Frames" by Electric Birds, "Ljudd" by Andreas Tilliander, and "Personal Rock" by Gramm. To be sure there are many others, but this is just to name the Crème de la Crème.
