- More Impossible Futures by Robin Fox

When I gave this a spin earlier in the week our man Mike thought it was a fax machine. This is the work of the highly underrated Melbourne artist who did a couple of albums with Antony Pateras and has been released on Room 40 and more recently dropped a stunner for Editions Mego. When this chap's not making the skies a better place by shooting lasers into them he's getting busy with both analogue and digital tools. 'More Impossible Futures' is very much the sound of digital information with loads of weird pulses and squiggles that at various points almost suggest something melodic will rise above the chaos/cacophony of micro rhythms. It's a most satisfying slice of computer music that will be lapped up with joy by those folks that enjoyed 'A Handful Of Automation' as much as I did. Flipside 'Drift Compression' is fully in the analogue domain constructed entirely on an EMS VCS3 synthesiser. Here Fox utilises a vast range of the frequency spectrum with high pitched sounds cascading and erupting into gaseous clouds that explode in waves of distortion. Then we get all sorts of fucked up malfunctioning sounds like R2D2 having a seizure from too much raving in the strobes and lasers. Top notch gear all round, this label is proving to be one to watch.
