1080p's latest full-length comes from Elan Benaroch, who used the opportunity to debut a new alias, Elka. Chants is, in many ways, typical of the Vancouver label's output of late. Melodious, tactile, dreamy and spaced-out, it sees Benaroch paying tribute to a variety of vintage styles, from classic Chicago deep house ("Pass Groove"), and early '90s intelligent techno ("Expander"), to loved-up, Sueno Latino-era Italian dream-house ("BBX1999"), deep acid ("Silver Beach", "Couch Trax"), and boogie-flavoured synthesizer house ("Heard & Seen"). Predictably, it's a hugely enjoyable set, with Benaroch getting just the right balance between analogue-rich fuzziness and head-in-the-clouds melodiousness.
