8/10 Mike Staff review, 17 June 2014
Rome's Mai Mai Mai impressed me last year with his 'Theta' LP, and he's back this week with a newie, 'Delta', which Phil informs me has already been receiving glowing praise from our friends at the Quietus (whose review I will read after I've written this, so I don't corrupt my own opinions with outside thoughts).   This one is a bit of a softer and less unpalatable ride than its often challenging predecessor, but as with the previous record, it's rather good but also a little difficult to pin down, mixing electronic beats with subtle analogue drones, intangible melodic touches and field recordings in an obsessively-honed sonic patchwork of beeps and scrapes and shudders.   Think a technoid take on Forest Swords's post-trip-hop chillscapes but minus the Morricone influences and plus a shade of Decimus-y dark ambience and sometimes a cold Basic Channel bumpiness to the beats. There's plenty of rhythmic and melodic detail to keep your attention, but doused in a blackly atmospheric shroud of liquid doom. It has that flickering fever-dream feel I get from Heroin In Tahiti but from a much more robotic, murky perspective. Thumbs up.
