Review: It's been some five years since we heard music from Brighton in the UK's Jonny Wildey who delivers WotNot music its first release since 2018. It follows Alphabets Heaven's 2015 Wanderer release, also on WotNot, with Cielo reinvigorating the project with three beat down, swampy and experimental flavours of augmented urban beatmaking. There's Warp and bleep-styled tropical techno-electro trips here to be found, such as "Slouchy" with its subtle hardcore and rave influebces threaded between the slower, trippy and percussive BPMs and modern pop-like arrangennts of "Hulu". Touching slightly on baile funk genres and softer industrial mallet percussions too, Alphabeat Heaven returns with a new groove.
Review: Capital Heaven is an independent record label and studio specializing in melodic house and techno, chill-out and electronica. For the label's next release, bosses Alec Milliner and Darren James team up again as Framewerk for slinky progressive breaks on the track "Alright". This is followed by a chugging Detroit techno vibe on the soulful "Making That Move", some ethereal mood music for the warm-up or afterhours alike on "Distant Horizons" and ending the great EP with the sublime ambient journey of "Arrakis".
