Following his detour into fractured, kaleidoscopic hip-hop with Fudge (the duo he formed with wunderkind rapper Michael Christmas), Herren has become increasingly interested in injecting a sense of space into his characteristically complex productions. The resultant 17-track collection is akin to watching an old photograph deteriorate in one‰۪s hands, as otherwise dense beats disintegrate into airy expanses of emotionally resonant electronics. Its effect is not unlike attempting to recall a murky memory of a dream of Herren‰۪s earliest works, imbibed with an increased interest in the subtlety of modern minimalism.
