Techno heaven.

Eschewing the standard electronic music approach of gradually layering beats and samples for maximum impact, in his Fields guise Swedish producer Axel Willner tends to dump the listener in the deep end from the get go. As the tight yet airy looping of the title track suggests, it’s a technique learnt as much from Steve Reich as Jeff Mills. Cavernous in depth and hypnotic in effect, the only downside to tracks like The Deal and Good Things End, as the latter possibly alludes to, is that they ever stop at all. This is one of those rare albums that makes you wonder how you ever got by without it.
