stunning album revealing real emotional heft and darkness through repeated listening. johannes auvinen renders massive, vast spaces with a few pads, drum machine and tape hiss to grand effect.. such majesty to these tracks, made all the more... See full review

proper floatation tank ambient. fills the room, slowly undulating with density.
B2 for me!
posted a review of Sierra - Land Of Dreams. 22 days ago
'land of dreams' is creme-de-la-creme NYC deep house with a nice mid-tempo shuffle. kinky bassline to get the bodies moving and killer keys from matt cole giving a jazzy feel not unlike the best efforts of the burrell bros, kerri chandler and co.. the... See full review
posted a review of C.K (2) - P = T. 29 days ago
C.K. is a deeply consistent producer whether applying their talent to kosmiche ambient or deep techy-house cuts.
the lead cut takes the sensuality of classic UKG but shifts it into a deeper house template, with proper ear worm riffs for days.
B1 cut... See full review

inimitable spacey ambient techno. a proper voyage of a record, an album truly cohesive in feeling..
extended acidic journey in the form of 'space again', a bath of tape hiss and undulating synth pulses in 'i can't look at it though' and 'cell block'... See full review
posted a review of Placid Angles - The Cry. 29 days ago
absolutely stunning LP with fresh and breezy, yet intricate beats.
particular highlights for me are 'fate' with the gliding, textured pads and warm bassline and the off-kilter brain dancing broken styles of 'her elements'.
some LPs will always remain... See full review

stunning opening track - drifts beautifully with the angular feeling of the chords and processing of those vocals.
another record showing livity sound as one of the most vital electronic labels of the 2010s and going forward.

beautiful ambient suspension - a continuation of the breath of fresh air found on 3.11 - Illuminate.

simply insane record. what's more considering it's his first - what a debut!

unique and singular tracks throughout, within the pieces contained on these two slabs of wax you can hear brown's peerless drum programming - intricate but never over the... See full review

stunning album, rich in texture and deliberate movement. music for drifting and watching the world go by. favorite tracks are 'lamp fest' and 'transier unt', the former a beautiful unfurling, slowly moving cut while the latter holds a voice in this... See full review

got a copy a couple of weeks back, i don't hear any of this surface noise/crackling people are referring to. the problem is almost always your turntable, make sure you actually set it up properly

insanely deep record..
SCN 2 recalling deep, focused Detroit-esque minimalism to tantalizing effect with that pulsing chord.
SCN 3 on an icy dub house joint, it's been a while since i've heard pads that sound this vast, contrasts beautifully with the... See full review

rare and inventive tracks from SW. - a great logical continuation of the vibe cultivated on the first LP.

same feeling echoed here - all about 'cosmic courier' here - driving acid with warmth and soul, really fun to mix with, goes well with solid four to the floor house but you'll need to pitch it down. fans of this record should check M5 (2) - Celestial Highways which... See full review

stunning record, a perfect slice of techno soul from the uk via detroit.
'touched' is lovely but it's the b-side tracks that steal the show. 'ethereal' is just that, moody with a deep basslines and distant gliding strings. 'electroluv' is simply... See full review

among claude young's best - focused and precise. 'i am nothing' - the perfect exercise in minimalism and restraint with interesting panning hats dancing around the stereo space. 'concentration factor' is absolutely huge, illegal techno bomb. massive... See full review

two dancefloor bombs and a cascading ambient texture. the brilliance 'greenspirit' is in the offbeat, sparse at first but love how the bassline and hihats fill in the space. 'optimist' is really fun, reminds me of the grain records, really focused and... See full review

head straight for 'Birds & Trees (Remix)' - slapping loopy garage house joint with climbing strings and insistent piano stabs. watch out in the mix as it does drift a little bit. goes without saying everyone needs a copy of 'club lonely' too.

killer collection of tracks - love that it's not all about the kick drums here.
wide open sighing pads on '697' make for a nice start to the record. '463' & '548' are killer, the former a beautiful paean of sunrise pads and FX with a tense bassline,... See full review

it samples some speech from Twin Peaks s2ep1, from the scene where Major Briggs explains a vision to his son, Bobby.
