Bass Clef – Maze Greys

Four tracks of long form, linear compositions. There’s something quite modern and ‘techno’ about the sound design in these tracks, very up-front and clean, with the structure powering through from A to B. Quite refreshing for fairly long tracks to have the feeling of propulsion, without any tendency for meandering off the track.

Bit late to the party with this one, but it still deserves a mention, as there are still some vinyl left (!). Symptoms of Love bring the vintage sampling styles (ala Thomas Dolby’s Fairlight era) along with modern production sensibilities, in this lush 5-tracker on Sydney’s Planet Trip.
