Review: London label Smiley Fingers has signed up an artist with a difference for its latest release. Hathor Libra, real name Cristian Comes, is inspired as much by IDM and techno as he is by deep house. This melange is audible on "Reconditum", where light melodies and tingling percussion are underpinned by a growling, frazzled bass. On "Stratos", the Italian producer also deploys a powerful bass, but on this occasion, it swaggers menacingly as it is accompanied by cold melodies. The title track offers further surprises: Comes again looks to use a pumping low end, but it's the eerie hooks, epic builds and unpredictable break downs that really impress.
