German producer Vertical67 remembers the good times on this fine Lunardisko debut, presenting a three track journey through the deepest realms of dreamy electro. We launch with the expansive production "In Space" where brisk 808 patterns drive delicately onwards through a rich backdrop of kaleidoscopic warmth, a real sense of melodic intuition apparent throughout. Flip the 10" over and ease down to 33rpm for the title track which presents a nice contrast between the jagged, menacing acid modulations and the skipping playful house grooves that demonstrate there's more to Vertical67's palette than straight up electro, though subtle remnants remain. Yearning distant female harmonies floating around the channels of "Mutuality" expertly add that extra element of melancholy to this brooding production.
