If you are a fan of the cut and paste styles of Coldcut or the downtempo Techno style of Global Communications this will serve credit to both genres. The artist in question who has mastered this work is Mark North. Drawing influences from the whole spectrum of Electronic music including Detroit Techno, Breakbeat and House. This album has haunting melodies, rythmetic beats which are intelligent in design and structure.
The tick-tock beats and tidal flair of the Night Owl are proof of the superb balance of beauty with a haunting quality more in line with Vangelis than Larry Heard. The pinging ambience of this album but for most of Marks work the melodies and slow-moving rhythms chart a course toward the upbeat and positive.
