Quality, variety, this album has it all
on 13 December 2012
Photek is better known for his dark, sparse, drum n bass of the 1990s but recent albums have strayed more into techno territory. There isn't even a hint of dnb in this album, however, there is pretty much every other style of dance music - breaks, techno, progressive, dubstep, uptempo, downtempo it's all here!
Each track seems to bring something entirely different to the album, yet at the same time, still retains a common style thread which marks it out clearly as 'Photek'. That means outstanding production, solid, driving beats, sparse soundscapes, heavy bass and catchy hooks.
'Pyramid' is my personal fave - dark, seductive, delicate and beautiful. This is an album that will take a long time to tire of and I can't think of a similar one out there. Well worth checking out, whatever electronic genre you are into.
