The key to this production is tension. As layers of sound are introduced so does the pressure increase. And yet you can feel an almost improvised Jazziness at play here too with piano strikes contrasted by a chorus of heavenly voices. The drums are typically smouldering while sound effects and treatments pick out spaces creating further dialogue, all in all this is an excellent piece of music. Then, Satellite delivers a message in words that captivate and inform as taught beats and keys punctuate the intention in four-four time, feeling like contemporary Acid could and should.
