the out-there freaks on the resident staff always clamour for this man’s productions – this one a particularly choice release featuring one side of smudge-house weird, and the other a long kosmsiche bliss-out.
‘Press On (Ruff Rub)’ oozes doped-up bass flesh alongside cracked Vangelis synth strokes, making for a proper scene setter, while the tense sensuality of ‘Elma (Ruff Rub)’ is House music at its most spectral, mixing elegant melodic pirouettes with coarse drums and druggy subs. Drifting from the ‘floor, the exquisite, BoC-like boogie massage of ‘Hiromis Theme’ acts as a sort of new age interzone before the standout flipside which gives the EP its name - a 20 minute, blissfully evocative fever-dream hitting right between the eyes of early Emeralds and Huerco’s much loved later albums. a huge one ffo actress, boards of Canada, and any ambient techno of note.
