Atmospheric Existence is hardly the most prolific label out there, and the fact their releases come around seemingly once a year is made all the more special by just how good they are. Refined Textures Vol 2 is as you might have guessed the second instalment of the label series first introduced early last year, with label boss Miles Sagnia joined by Bittersuite, Life Recorder and Paramartha. It's the Bittersuite duo of Dom Thompson and Jon Gray that set the tone with "Rituals" a expansive experience that draws out widescreen almost cosmic melodic elements over a strident groove, which is complemented by dubbier, stripped down "Better With You" from label debutant Life Recorder, a track that accrues infinite levels of textural detail as it rattles onwards. Sagnia's effort is of course worthy of the "Refined" tag with "Gravitate" framed at a low angle that allows the crisp, playful programming centre place whilst Paramartha ends proceedings on a jittering acid note with the excellent "Sparticus".
