I have become a big fan of Monolake, and consider any release by him a "day one" purchase. Every new album pushes the boundaries further out into what electronic music is, and what message it conveys to the listener. Here we have another foray into a world of complex rhythms, eerie soundscapes, and invented, processed sounds that feel cold, almost metallic on their own, but brought together take the listener on a warm sonic exploration.
I've read up on the techniques that Robert Henke uses to create the sounds that feature prominently on his albums, and the man is nothing short of a modern day renaissance figure in the world of electronic music production. What appear at first to be unforgiving, sterile synthesizers, algorithms, and waveforms become something much more organic. His skills at inventing new ways of creating and warping sound are truly amazing, and always come together to create a very fulfilling listening experience on each Monolake album.
