'Cardboard Rocketships' is a CD by Mint on Boltfish, an electronica stable that used to be full of rare Aquatic specimens but they all escaped one day so now all they're left with is some stagnant water & a pile of CDs to sell. Sob. It must be soooo hard being a fish. Mates with Cheju and King of Chill, Ulrich Schnauzzer, this Murray chappie has produced a work of incredibly soothing melodic electronica with sweeping synths, cyclic chiming bits, glitchy flickers & unthreatening beatmastery. By 'System Cost', things are getting a little more eerie & electroid, like some spooky old Toytronic release but not for long is he stuck in a tunnel of creepy ghosties, 'Keiji's Dream' is built around that kind of euphoric, symphonic home listening techno that seems like an old friend - roaring along brandishing sparkling, glacial synth washes, skittery electro beats & stately bass thrums with loads of easy-on-the-ear twinkling melodies that will just delight fans of Digitonal & Wisp for instance. A journey through many shades & moods but with an above average ear for detail, a rich tuneful tapestry of hugely accessible & atmospheric songs. First 50 copies come with a numbered bonus DVD but be quick if you require one of those!!! A superb release that includes a Mint remix of Ulrich Schnauss's 'Shine'!
