Add to this dark, trippy atmospherics and the result is a coherent body of quality electronic music. Moving from the understated minimal house of â€˜Black Rainâ€™ and subtle menace of â€˜Running Systemsâ€™, the album slips into the uplifting, dream-like state of â€˜A Thousand Nightsâ€™ and â€˜Painkillerâ€™, the latter reminiscent of deep, mid-nineties prog-house/electronica.
With its saw-wave bassline and sparkly riff, anthem â€˜Full Range Madnessâ€™ was a peak of last yearâ€™s â€˜Compilation Fâ€™ on Cocoon Records, winning support from many top DJs. The gear moves up a considerable notch on the growling, 6am darkness of â€˜Antiâ€™ before shifting subtly onto the jerky, click-house-gone-reverb-laden-techno of â€˜Benthosâ€™. The album closes with â€˜The Good Lifeâ€™, a classic piece of shiny, deep house.
