Amoeba Review

06/13/2014

Shimmering electronic beatiness courtesy of the Nottingham-based producer Matt Cutler. An exceptional craftsman, Cutler's lush excursions into nu-rave and garage helped him make a name as one of the most detail-oriented beauty-dealers in contemporary electronic music. Now, he has returned, two years down the line from his exquisite Galaxy Garden with a record more steeped in the chunky rhythms of American hip-hop and its crossovers with early Detroit and Chicago techno sounds. While the hip-hop often appears as soul-orchestral sampledelia or Chicago-housey jazz-piano stabs, Cutler's concern goes beyond mere texture or settling for a clean genre imitation. Never one to shy from melody, these songs are laced with Blade Runner synth-leads bouncing and swerving like a light-cycle or a particularly excellent screensaver. Every song on the album is packed with beautiful details, far away voices, momentary percussive rattles, odd filters at just the right time. Potentially less clubby than previous releases but still packed with enough bangers to please the heads on the dance floor.
