Opening track ‘La Aperture’floats on a fabulous jittery percussive groove and hip-wrenching sub-bass, laced with melodic swells and wave after wave of lush motifs, in what is an excellent collaborative meeting of minds between Straub and Fe Vargas. For ‘Jericho’Straub goes solo, creating an excellent low-slung, clanky metallic groove, spotted with solo synth lines and evocative vocal snippets. He follows this with ‘Reinforcement’, which is built on an energetic, exceptionally tight and focused percussive groove experiment, unrelenting in its linear attitude throughout. The perfect finale comes in the form of ‘Collecting The Stars’, where, bedded on a stripped-back kick and snappy percussion groove, Straub and Nilseus build a beautiful melody-rich cinematic landscape, riding on a carpet of deep, driving bass and detailed rhythmic mastery.
With recent releases on Josh Wink’s Ovum imprint and Hot Since 82’s Knee Deep In Sound, Philipp Straub is an ever-present creative force.
