Marking their first release of the year, Fourth Wave enlist the mysterious AA to deliver a righteous spread of leftfield house grooves that continue the fine tradition in unconventionality that has shaped the label so far. Ostensibly it's a deep house record, but it's more concerned with atmospherics and sophisticated melodic sources than it is with beats. Opener "The Cleansing" thuds like Theo Parrish, but goes into an entirely new space through the haunting, heavily treated violin. "Skyway" rumbles along consistently, but it's defined by a lack of pronounced percussion, instead letting rich layers of melody lead the way. Throughout Skyway there are moments of surprise and wonder, all encapsulated in a fresh and honest approach to a well trodden path.
