More organic-electronic wizardry from the excellent Project: Mooncircle! This time newcomer Kidkanevil and label favourite Daisuke Tanabe join forces to produce one of the most intriguing concoctions of snippets and noises we've heard in a while. Every track emanates a stunning DIY aesthetic, merging beautiful harmonics with blends of disorganised crackles and pops, such as "School Chimes", a perfect unison between earthly sonics and delicate notes. "Sgstep" is another marvel, an almost UK bass sound being devoured by unexpected bleeps; whereas more downtempo numbers like "Ghostboy" and "Ghostgirl" represent the more chimerical side of the duo. One of the standout moments however, comes from the deranged beat layouts of "Cherry Chimes", another bass-laden trip through aquatic synths and filtered tenors.
Seemingly on a mission to issue forth as much music as humanly (or robotically?) possible, Robot Koch is once again channeling his future-minded beats through his usual portal of Project: Mooncircle. The sometime Jahcoozi member has hit upon a fertile spring of creativity with his solo sound, mining the hypnotic shuffle of home-listening 2-step whilst embracing techno textures and still finding plenty of room for baggy hip hop tempo diversions. On this release the mood rarely remains in one place, as a swinging boom bap will melt into an exercise in ambient dynamics, before coming up for air in a strange bath of minimal beats and bass rip curls. With pristine production values to round it off, there's no dip in the quality even if the quantity is staggeringly high.
