Bee Mask aka Chris Madak is a master of ambient, drone electronics and everything in between; he's even been picked up by none other than Will Bankhead for one of his phantasmal cassette excursions on the revered TTT catalogue. This latest EP comes on Australia's Room 40, a label which has been putting out some breathtakingly leftfield music for a number of years now. Title track, "Vaporware" combines a bleepy, Warp-like ensemble of sonics with a stunning background of cascading pads to create a dreamy landscape of melodies which sound nearer to modern classical than to anything electronic. On the B-Side, "Scanops" is another chimerical excursion into distant voices, lingering pads and rippling synthesizer experimentations. Recommended!
