Nesta – Eclectic Electric Nightfall CD1 – Fantome de Nuit

Such a wonderful album full of resounding delights and just as impressively this forms the first release in a series of three albums all due this year from the artists own label. When sometimes in world of rapidly delivered ideas music gets repeated into an endless, mindless void devoid of meaning it is refreshing to grapple with this set of imaginatively emotive sounds. The edgy synthesised ambience generated by the opening Room With a View is soon turned upon as the following funky brushstrokes of Not Your Usual Thing play an altogether more playful melody. Next the excellent Cleopatra on Acid seeks out more minimal climbs, while further afield the tracks explore a diverse range of the technological yet always highlight feeling and atmosphere. Completing the album are the spacey futures created via the drum machine fuelled Belles, and then the brilliant twisted syncopation of Drive Anywhere which is quite the statement to finish on.

Release: May 26
