There's little online that reveals the identity of Nous newcomer O Xander, other than a minimalist Soundcloud profile peppered with unreleased demos and off-kilter re-edits. His debut for the Berlin-based imprint is nevertheless impressive, with opener "Lovers Theme" wrapping ghostly chords and woozy, electronic bass around an '80s electro-influenced deep house groove. The electro influence continues on the drum machine handclap-heavy "Jupiter Jam", while "Integrity & Intensity" and "Dirac Sea" both sound like the handiwork of Legowelt. Opal Tapes type Karen Gwyer remixes the latter cut, delivering a brilliant fusion of stuttering drum machine rhythms, drifting chords and fizzing electronics.
