Melbourne's Rory McPike wears many hats: whether it be Bleekman, Dan White or Pickleman - he certainly proves there's much diversity within his sonic repertoire. By comparison, his Rings Around Saturn alias hones in on his ambient and IDM influences, as heard previously on full length releases for Hidden Waves, Rhythm Works and Indole. Taking his bow on Voyage, we hear McPike venture into deep and introspective territory on the "Circling Architecture", featuring tracks such as "Engineered Ruins" with its intergalactic broken beat hypnotism reminiscent of Peacefrog's seminal back catalogue, the emotive "Decompression" coated with the aesthetic of Aphex Twin, and the slo-mo techno of closer "The Edgelands" which crosses into a deep and introspective territory that would work as well on the dancefloor as it would in the armchair.
