German experimental electronics figure and Nonplace boss Bernd Friedman is back, this time on Doug Laurent's Risque imprint which has been a bit quiet until now. First track "Masque" is a sturdy minimal house jam with the immaculate and focused style of highgrade production found on Ricardo Villalobos or Uwe Schmidt's recordings. Nothing fancy or full throttle, just beauty in its restraint and execution. Second track "Peluche" somehow merges dub techno aesthetics with jazz sensibilities on this odd yet compelling fusion but we are talking about Burnt Friedman here; this guy has experimented with all kinds of crossover over the years and is what makes his work so compelling.
