George Thompson's Black Merlin project has found a home on labels as Jealous God and Boyz Noise and now he brings it to Berecuse Heroique. "Proto World" is the most DJ-friendly cut here, all booming drum patterns, foreboding male vocal samples and an adherence to a decidedly industrial-influenced groove. Having satiated that need, Thompson then proceeds to impress with more abstract offerings; "Spirit World" is an enchanting, gamelan-esque workout, while on "Vision Animal", he moves into chilly stepping mode, led by sharp percussive bursts. The real highlight is left till last though, and "Hope" is an entrancing, hypnotic mood music piece.
