Is there any chance Central Processing Unit could release a bad record? Just to show that they are human. There's no chance this time around with this superbly warm slab of electro. The A side 'Hello' (hello to you too) has that deliciously warm and soft sound associated with past greats like Plaid and Aphex Twin at his most melodic. It's an immediate killer of a tune with some superb acidy squiggles towards the fade adding to the general '90s Warp and Skam heyday feel. If I had the words, I'd talk about that track all day but there are three more to consider. First up 'Accidental' breaks out from it's pulsating beginning with a feel-good hook over some simple drum machine.
Overleaf things get a bit squelshier, 'Ju_World' sounds kind of like video game music in a puddle, the drum machine is pre old school with a distinct lack of 4/4 beats, 'Telephone' is a hi energy pulsator, with squiggly synths struggling to keep up with the swift BPM. The closer 'MVMS' introduces some haunting Plaid-like synths
There are a lot of squiggles. I found the B side to be a bit too squiggly (or maybe I was all squiggled out) but the A side to get things just right with a more spacious sound. Anyway it's another winner from this collectible label.
