Poborsk put together electronica that sounds like it was made in the '90s or early '00s. I don't mean that as a bad thing, either - I just mean it's lively and melodic and wonky with lots of quite percussive notes and microclicks and the like for a kind of drip-like cumulative effect. Phil reckons it sounds like it would've fit right in on the Expanding label. There's techno elements but it's too busy and cerebral to really be aimed at the dancefloor, and it sometimes sounds like a simplified, less beat-heavy take on the early Plaid sound. In places it drops down to quite thoughtful, repetitive, almost ambient places, with an insistent repeated bassline the only rigid thing as the trebles go all soft and shifty. I reckon this is ideally suited to having on your headphones on a long walk. I quite like how the dignified, almost stoical melodies have been mixed with playful, sometimes even comical tones for a textural disconnect that's fun and grooving and emotionally dry without seeming inhuman. Good, slightly retro-sounding, simple, melodic electronica, basically. And it's really long, and there's a download with it. Totally worth a punt.
