Ooh, I don't mind this. French techno fella Oxia is back with his first record in eight years and it's full of crisp beats and smooth tones, from gliding synths to jazzy plinky-plonk lounge piano. After a day of trying to dole out my thoughts on impenetrable drones it's good to have something with a bit more structure and melody to grasp onto.

On this offering Oxia seems to be moving along with the times and there are definite Burial elements in the watery synth melodies, but with more of a glacial '90s techno-house thing going on. It's one of those records you can tell definitely came from mainland Europe, but those potentially cloying Euro-house elements are tempered by a subtle, dark sense of space that falls somewhere between Matias Aguayo and Clams Casino, making for a smooth, enveloping listen which, although it can be a bit safe and coffee-table in places, has enough satisfying moments to warrant repeated listens. Bet it sounds ace when you're stuck on the M62 in your Mercedes with the hood down on a sunny day on your way to a friendly game of golf with your business associates. It has its moments but could use a little more bite.
