Italian production pair Hiver specialise in blurring the boundaries between deep house and techno, audible on a string of acclaimed EPs for Vidab and Curle. Now they make their debut on Obscura and a similar approach applies. Both "Inverted Scale" and "RJ45" are driving but tranced out affairs, while at the other end of the spectrum, there's the glorious ambience of the title track and "Glass Effect". Both arrangements have a depth and atmospheric sensibility rarely heard in modern electronic music. Orbe is given the challenging task of reworking "Spiritual Machines", but succeeds in turning it into a rolling house workout. It's another deep masterclass from Hiver.
