7/10 Clinton Staff review, 13 February 2014

Originally the provocateur behind the madcap V/Vm label (sample release ‘Snooker Loopy’ various mangled takes on Snooker-based themes), then for basically inventing hauntology with the much-loved The Caretaker project, finally exploring more acid/rave themes under his (sort of) own name. James Kirby has been this that and the other.

This latest release is typically varied. The opening title track is the only track which could be described as particularly beautiful, comprising of a series of arpeggiated synth notes heavily dosed in hiss, it recalls some of the earlier U-ziq work flitting this way and that, introducing some 70’s prog synth into the equation while its at it. ‘Last Ditch Legacy’ burbles along on some slo-mo Belgian techno lollop with some wild monolithic synth prodded on top. ‘Diminishing Legacy’ is a drifting Kosmiche wash of random synth tones that just goes on and on and on but you’ll be grateful for its soothing tones once you reach the acid squelsh jazz of ‘Staring Down the Sun’ which basically heads towards Squarepusher territory turning a swift left into prog synth twiddly mahem.

An intriguing artist definitely, but not always all that pleasant to listen to.
