- Hyperspace Is The Place / Hyperspace Is No Place by Don't DJ
Robbie Williams’ best friend, the guy who doesn’t want to DJ, slacks off with a 12” of swathey ambient dance music, focusing on subtly sweeping textures and liquid beatwork. He builds these tunes with well-slotted additives, like someone slowly making a lego blueprint reality -- “Hyperspace Is The Place” begins with a windscreen wiper soundbyte that makes way for a trembling sample, a shuffling beat and a quietly bouncing bassline. It sounds busy but low-key, ambling along in a comfortable chorus -- its climax of chiming percussion is one rare showing of xylophone hype.
Mr. Don’t knows how to make rustling maximalism sound subtle and voided, with the record’s second track moving rapidly through rhythmic infights and whirring noise collations while never stirring up trouble. The record’s second side offers more light transmission, though it gets slightly more upbeat and drives home the kinda dance music perfect for my current sitting-with-coffee disposition. It’s a beautiful bit of rave shrubbery.
