While things may have been quiet on the Datassette front lately, the artist once signed to much-missed UK electronica label Ai Records is back in action with this release for Apollo. It's another wise step in broadening the reach of the ambient R&S spin-off, and at the same time the plush melodic tones of the artist sit comfortably alongside other recent material from the label. The first part of the title track lilts and bumps its way through a broken rhythmic template somewhere in the region of 2 step, while "Vacuform" channels the spirits of electro and coldwave to a slow but heavy pace, and "Helvetica Calcium" whips up a dreamy, glitched out electro funk message.
