These heavy studio / live loose jam sessions have borne truly verdant musical fruit in the form of this debut release – opener “Sid’s Conudrum” sets the pulse racing with its uptempo cyborg funk – juddering bass and bleeping synth squiggles, while “Ashford Swaithes” leads with a heavyweight bass rhythm – sizzling emotive pads and tripped out hi-freq arpeggios. “Dive Prophets” closes things out with spiraling airy chords cascading over slurping bass and stuttering, stop/start percussion that confounds and delights.
ALSO is pan genre, pan generational, emotive electronic music at its best, truly something special and a fine addition to R&S’ rich heritage of forward-thinking dancefloor sonic artistry.
