Over the past year or two I've picked up several Inch Time recordings many of which have impressed me with their haunting atmospheres and gentle 4/4 rhythms. I was a little disappointed initially with the first couple of tracks on this album as they veered off into a more synthy direction but by 'Of Times Past' normal service has been resumed though it does sound like on this album the wizard behind the project Stefan Panczak is preparing to stretch himself away from the dubby techno he does so expertly. Its beautifully warm, organic electronica - simple piano chords are placed over haunting synths and theres the odd rhodes piano tinkering away in the background. The influences and comparisons are quite clear, various Basic Channel, Kompakt as well as the noise made by the likes of Metamatics, Strategy, Murcof. Its a little synthetic in places and an injection of 'real' instruments could create a more diversity and dimension but on tracks such as 'Late Spring' there's a suprising amount of variety in sound as the track unfurls itself and moves into new territories.
