Placid is a crafty name for an album of acid jams isn’t it? Here Recondite goes even further out than on his debut On Acid (which is included here on the CD version as a generous bonus). Still keeps things plenty banging though. Released by Absurd’s spin-off imprint, the suitably named Acid Test.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 05 November 2015
Winter is a coming and the world is getting bleaker. It’s the perfect time then for a new release by Recondite. The German producer excels is frosty soundscapes that capture a particular downtrodden mood of monochrome indifference. His sound is techno (I guess) with heavy acid influences yet it is slow and carefully constructed. These pedestrian bpms lead to perfect electronic music for a haunting journey across wild landscapes. Opener ‘Compel’ sets the tone with a relaxed 4/4 thump, pulsing electronics and stretched synth notes. Melancholic it might be but this is melodic stuff -- ’Pass Up’ has a melody Boards of Canada would be proud of but places it in a completely different context with bass wobbles and hushed synth creating an icy bedrock.    This record is brilliantly understated  -the production is crisp and clear but Recondite holds back on dynamics  - each track subtly shifts mood around this pastoral, sad techno. ‘Pages’ is the perfect example of how the tracks develop, it starts out moody, full of crestfallen synths and tired bass notes but soon sneaking in is a rather cheerful melody and the track changes tack and becomes a gorgeous uplifting slice of electronica.   This is endearing mood music that deserves a place on your turntable as you battle the winter chill.
