Kr!z fuses his abiding fascination with his heroes; Jeff Mills, Robert Hood and Steve Rachmad, with sonic inspiration from Token contemporaries such as Antigone, O [Phase] and Sigha. Four hypnotic trips, exquisite loops and sinuous contours, bolstered with time-honoured percussive grooves.
The opener is Salvation; a delicate and shimmery exploration of semitone meandering. Deflection's incessant stabs hit on the first beat of the bar and continue to stride boldly throughout. The Detroit influences come through most prominently in Mantra, with a muted, spacey theme, while The Start of Nothing's gradual modulation of a lead is captivating both in its loyalty to tradition and its forward-thinking musical expression.
