The North Borders
eagerly awaited 5th album takes the rich, organic arrangements of 'black sands' to giddy new heights of energy & compositional finesse.
utilising the same compelling blend of lush acoustic strings leaning towards eastern melodies, soulful vocals & hard-hitting beats for a modern dancefloor, 'the north borders' is a refinement of the sound of his new direction & a compelling journey when listened to as a whole. 'cirrus' builds with chiming acoustic melodies & grooving layers of percussion. on 'heaven for the sinner' erykah badu's dreamy vocals are set to a beautiful meandering piano line & swathes of synths in a blissful, downtempo swirl. szjerdene lays down beautiful harmonies on the eddying, hypnotic 'towers' & 'transits', while cuts like 'emkay' & 'know you' put his distinctive stamp on the uk garage revival sound. "a triumph - each listen is a revelation; seemingly it’s a breadth of work that marks a new, exciting era of electronic music" 9/10 - clash.
