While Paul 'Apiento' Byrne could hardly be described as prolific, the few singles he does release are rarely anything less than brilliant (see 2010's "She Walks" and 2011's much-played "The Orange Place" for proof). This first outing for four years, this time for Phil South's brilliant Golf Channel label, is another belter. While "The Light Machine" - a dreamy, slo-mo combination of drifting pads, bubbling acid lines and sparse analogue beats - is a fine concoction, it's "ESP" that's the real killer. A chunky, undulating midtempo Balearic house groover built around a rush-inducing synth melody, it sounds like a summer classic in the making. Lexx remixes, adding a little low-end throb and more percussive density.
