Lackluster: FOC349: URB Review


It is perhaps surprising, considering the gentleness of the material, to discover that these tracks and the forthcoming album were both recorded while their creator, Esa RuohoƤs, fulfilled his duty with the Finnish National Service. The four tracks on this latest EP pay homage to Warp's Artificial Intelligence era with the sounds, which are individually weak, folding out into enjoyable grooves -- clicking melodies exploring the landscapes sketched out by vast synth sections.
