8/10 according to on Wed 19 Jun, 2013

Here’s an EP on Public Information from Portuguese producer IVVVO with a selection of short(ish) but sweet tracks of modern house/techno/electronica stylings. Opening impressively with ‘Darkness in my Soul’, IVVVO combines some sweet analogue synth drones and tone bursts with thudding beats and a looped vocal sample for a lush but shadowy workout, then ‘Before The Death Of Rave’ mixes a techno beat with synthetic female voice drones, bassy synth stabs and a bloopy, chaotic high-end melody in bright library tones. The side ends with a plaintive bit of piano bathed in analogue hiss and crackle like it’s been dug up from the past.

Side B’s ‘Future’ opens with a wonderful stuttering locked-groove rhythm which then gets joined by understated acid touches and a muffled, decaying synth playing a dreamy, tumbling melody which is reminding me of Boards of Canada. Then ‘Under Grey’ continue this mix of acid techno brightness and blurry intangibility, but this time it’s reminding me more of a crisper, treblier take on Burial’s driftstep vibes. Then this side ends, as the other did, with a lovely sad piano instrumental, allowing you to reflect on what you just heard. Thankfully what you just heard was rather good.

So, what do you think?
