German producer Andreas "Aybee" Branke is scarily prolific, with a bulging discography that stretches back to the mid 2000s. Here, he delivers an EP of spooky, melancholic deepness that should impress all those who like their house served with a generous portion of clandestine atmospherics. The skewed, bruk-meets-acid experiment "Kommands" aside, Astral Metronome is an EP touched with sadness. Opener "No Fiction" trickles out of the speakers like the tears of a broken man, all deep, woozy chords and bittersweet melodies. "Ether", meanwhile, is wonderfully hypnotic, delivering heart-aching looped melodies atop a deep and scratchy groove.
