The opening track from Nathan Fake's recent album 'Steam Days‘ gets two choice remixes. The delicate electronic melancholia of the original gets dragged through a post-rave dusky haze by Lone, whilst Lukid rids the niceties of the original and wrangles it with raw beats. Top remixes, check.
Braindance poster boy Nathan Fake returns to Border Community with a 'Iceni Strings, a symphonic monster constructed from a snaking triplet bassline and AFX harmonies. 'Sense Head' and 'Bauxite Dream' are equally delirious with stumbling rhythms and surging synths. Trippy hippie techno deluxe.
'Steam Days' is Nathan Fake's third album and in the absence of Richard D. James and Boards of Canada from the current release circuit it upholds the sonic ideal of balancing experimental grooves with carefully constructed synth composition that glisten with melancholic pop drama. Recommended.
