    During the dubstep craze of 2009-2010 (when the genre went from the underground to the electronic foreground and even the mainstream) there were three specific albums that you can mix up in your head thinking that one track is from the other: Guido's "Anidea", Salva's "Complex Housing" and this one. They all share a classic futuristic drum n bass take on dubstep, with the Silkie one being the most blatant at those synth pads, basslines and melody construction.

    I loved it back then. It is beautiful and uplifting, with some common ground with Machinedrum in the jazzy chords, but mostly remaining futuristic, detroitish, with bleeps that seem to come from the broken beat scene (specifically the first Domu) and a wonderful ear for hooks. Some tracks may be too similar to others, but I think that is a cohesive quality this album has, with highlights everywhere. Do I prefer the Somatik-like "The Horizon"? The bleepy "Concrete Jungle"? (See also brutalism as a theme going around), or the more obvious nod to jungle in "Quasar"? Dunno, The wobbles work so well with these melodies.

      I cant believe the mess the pressing plant made with this pivotal LP. Still doesn't deter from the amount of work gone into creating the melodies, bass patterns and layers of sound design that is a fundamental part of his work.

      I for one heard this back then and since, buy on sight for me.
