A trancey techno ode to his family, Salazar's "Aspirations..." is fluid, emotional and filled with bangers. The standout is "Orange Blossom Thump", rolling along on its undulating bassline and matter-of-fact acid undertones. Punctuated by brief ambient interludes - "Xol's Pain", "Dark Matter" - this tribute to both Detroit and Los Angeles house/techno - with very subtle hints of Latin vibes ("Pachuco Dub") - is an underrated highlight in a year of great electronic releases.
