I though I'd grab this bugger as I've not quite got to grips with the output from this three-pronged all-star experimental collective. I bought the Mala/DMZ remix the other week 'cause it's Mala innit? But the source material is a different kettle of eels entirely. This is apparently a more "expressive" outing than previous endeavors and another guest, Tikiman, provides balmy, distant guitar noodling over an organic dub-flecked ambient epic. As the track evolves, quietly chinking percussion meets some implicit cycles of quiet abrasion - I love how it all chuffs dreamily away. Concrete noises usher in a more hypnotic tribal feel but it's still total chill-out time for these boys. A very immersive experience that continues with the deep, dubby, aquatic dream-scapery of 'Structure 2'. That lovely spangled guitar makes a thoroughly welcome return, the whole track unfolding mesmerically with some superb exploratory vibes and more gentle tribal percussion. Onto the third segment, which is another, quite different, slice of epic ambient dub. This sounds more like a heavily stoned Monolake at their most horizontal - some beautiful rich effects ride a languid groove that breathes deeply for a few minutes before that tropical guitar suddenly zings mischievously in and quickly out of earshot, seemingly at random. Another wonderfully tripped-out roller that confirms this as a much more essential purchase than the rather confusing 'Vertical Ascent'. I'll leave 'Structure 4' as a surprise, both for yourselves and I, as I think this one deserves to be introduced into my collection sometime really soon!!!
