||7.||"Wish You Were Here"|
Mille Plateaux, Tetsuya Nakamura's second Arc of Doves album, has long been in demand amongst both ambient and dub techno aficionados. Originally released back in 2010 in limited numbers and subsequently reissued in 2014, Rohs! Records have finally succumbed to pressure and given it a third release, albeit in ultra-limited quantities. Listening for the first time, it's easy to see why the album is held in such high esteem. The ambient tracks are atmospheric, picturesque and enveloping, Nakamura finding a near perfect balance between poignancy and positivity, while the dub techno excursions are far breezier and attractive than the sound design-obsessed fare served up by many within the scene. There are only 100 of these floating around, so grab one while you can.
