Always a prolific force operating on his own terms, Stephen Laubner makes his first appearance of 2017 with a release on the ever-growing Untold Stories label. Renbual Nahpets finds Laubner in a dubby frame of mind, especially on lead track "Sunny Park Chill" which sports some of his trademark grainy techno chords lingering in space surrounded by field recordings and subtle ripples of rhythm. "The Mountain Dub" meanwhile whips up a taut, rugged house groove with shimmering delays on the synth tones that only STL could be responsible for. Cleymoore uses the B side to lay out a remix of the latter track, turning it into a long and winding minimal track thick with detail.
