Ripperton: Sight Seeing

Although there is a rising sentiment that everyone and their dog is now listening to ambient, Ripperton’s ‘Sight Seeing’ LP on ESP Institute has been a constant companion for myself over the past couple of months. In a high volume, high consumption world, an album being as tenacious as ‘Sight Seeing’ is something to truly value.

James Zabiela: Balance 029

Commissioned mixes have been through their driest 12 months in recent memory, creating a palpable appetite for something fresh and lavish. James Zabiela’s ‘Balance 029’ is beyond a marker for a brand new year, it is a brand new star in the most exclusive of constellations.

Isorinne: Speechless Malison

‘Speechless Malison’ is a deeply textural experience. Although this should be no surprise to followers of Michel Isorinne’s works to date. If your wallet can suffer a small additional amount of thinning in this post festive season, dive in. For this is arguably his finest creation to date.

Just recently, he has started to make himself known as a producer in his own right, rolling out an EP and archive out-takes releases under the moniker Tom Hang. Now, following these initial exploratory expeditions, is his debut album ‘To Be Held In A Non-Position’.

Emra Grid: Shay’s Vacation House

Shay’s Vacation House isn’t always a pleasant stay, yet there is something compelling about it, like tonguing an ulcer to feel the rush of pain and withdrawing only to feel the throb beckoning you back for another prod.

1800HaightStreet: Endless

Hype itself is a devious beast, which can toy with perception, especially with regards to helping you internally over-selling, say, a sprawling eight vinyl monster as a landmark as you succumb to its fever. With that in mind, coming into ‘Endless’ blind was a delightful experience, both through an unexpected surprise and also knowing that all appreciation was untainted.
