Long-serving techno producer Mario Hammer first joined forces with The Lonely Robot (AKA Josef Steinbuchel) back in 2015. The duo's largely overlooked debut album of Berlin School inspired ambient works, L'esprit De L'escalier, soon followed. Two years on, they return to action with an equally impressive follow-up. Musically, Je L'ai Callissee La explores similar sonic territory its predecessor, with Gammer and Steinbuchel wrapping grandiose electronic chords and ear-catching synthesizer melodies around woozy soundscapes and sampled audio textures. There are a few gently rhythmic moments dotted throughout, though these are still undeniably horizontal in ethos, rather than attempts at dancefloor domination. Throughout, the tracks sound spacey, atmospheric and beguilingly beautiful.
