Scotland's Jason Taylor is back on Fent Plates with his Aether moniker, and we've just begun to truly appreciate his explorative, downtempo strain of dubstep; which, in reality, is more on the IDM side of the spectrum. "Catharsis", for instance, would have made the likes of Autechre proud back in the day, and the only thing separating Aether from those guys is their heavier focus on low frequencies. "Vale" reminds us more of the Burial sound, a glitchy, percussion-heavy stagger. "Flowerdance" is more ambient than anything else, which makes for an excellent refreshment, while "At What Point Do I Stop Trying" is a moody, seductive glitch attack that'll please all sorts of connoisseurs.
Fent Plates have created for themselves a beguiling world of Gothic, atmospheric beats and artwork. Here Nottingham duo Congi feed straight into that world perfectly. With six tracks on here it almost qualifies it as a mini-album. Some particularly intoxicating cuts featured on the LP include the dreamy jazz fog of "Contours", the fizzy, stoner synth-pop of "Easy To Tell" and the slow and moody panpipe joint "Only You". Once you visit their world, you won't want to go home.
