Hopefully you will have picked up on the work of Sam Goldberg a.k.a Radio people by now, especially if you're bang into your synth exploration shit like me. Goldberg's S/T LP on Digitalis earlier in the year was an absolute beauty so I'm pleased to see Mexican Summer are getting behind another release so soon. Goldberg's sound is very much in tune with the current crop of synth wizards taking that shit back to old school. You can hear elements of Emeralds use of cascading, epic melodies and bold use of arpeggio as a basis for rhythmic interplay but 'Hazel' also shares a lot in common with experimentation of Zombi, Stellar Om Source, the library record explorations of the Ghost Box label as well as hints of Oneohtrix Point Never, Steve Moore, Majeure and the like. 'Hazel' is jam packed with awesome soundtrack-esque instrumentals of the like Carpenter and Vangelis would be a tad jealous of. Waves of dominant buzz saw drones and crispy little beats play off ascending melodies and New Age ambiance creating a insistent yet tranquil vibe that will have you idealising intergalactic space travel, utopian future cities and beautiful terraform planets in a semi-comatosed dreamlike state. Shame no-one's making any movies worthy of this kind of soundtrack, where are those blasted DeLorean time machines and Hoverboards we we're promised anyway? Another victory for Mr. Goldberg. Nice work lad.
