    IDM is oftentimes a difficult line to ride: you want to be intelligent without being indulgent or pretentious. And the Planet Mu label has been (mostly) successful at keeping things down to earth. The Gasman's _This One's For You_ does feel like an homage to the early days of techno ("Nexium 2" almost induces acid flashbacks) with a strong harmonic sense and an almost downplaying of the percussion. The tracks here are earnest, which is a refreshing change from the drill-n-noize attitude many others take. "Creampie" and "Digital Din" give a wink to the toytown techno of the early 90s, and the more beatless "Goof" and "Go (Before You Break My Heart)" try for a little more tenderness, but, for my money, the more melodic tracks are the ones that rise to the top: the appropriately cool "Freezer"; the angular "Crazy Boot Fun House"; the stately "Chalk". This one may be for you, but this is an album that anyone can enjoy.

      I think The Gasman offers us a refreshing take on the early (UK)Rave scene, as well as some classic jungle breaks. Tracks as 'Creampie' and 'Digital Din' are truly outstanding in my opinion. They combine fast programmed, shifted jungle beats, with some beautiful and insane melody on top of it. Very suitable to play on your parties, or just at home at full volume. This album simply offers you a 21st century view on some quality electronic music from the past decade.
