Gardland is the Sydney-based duo of Alex Murray and Mark Smith, who this week drop their debut album on RVNG. It’s going down really well in the office today, and it’s not hard to see why. The duo craft a restless but laconic blend of techno and house, adorning an insistent pulse with all manner of extended drone melodies and cracked synth loops to form a bright and airy aesthetic which is cerebral and mechanical but also warm, human and most importantly danceable.

‘One In’ is particularly impressing on my first run through with some deft acid squiggles, an off-kilter melody of digitally chopped clanks and staccato synth bleeps and some weird distant kettle-boiling drones which subside for a tasty rhythmic ride which sounds like Fourtet jamming with Cherrystones after smoking some particularly potent weed. Everything here is pretty instantly likeable though, a mixture of that smooth 100% Silk-ish house sound and darker, colder techno territory. Really good stuff.
