Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement has long been one of the more intriguing aliases of prolific producer Dominic Fenrow. Unlike his better-known and highly politicized Vatican Shadow project, RSE has no dancefloor ambitions. Instead, it sees him take a deep dive into the world of ambient music, delivering tracks that fuse droning textures and the hazy pulse of dub techno with humid field recordings and picturesque electronics. Ambient Black Magic, the sixth RSE full-length, could well be the strongest yet. While it does include stretched-out moments of late night creepiness - a feature of previous albums - there are some stunningly melodious and meditative moments, too, not least opener "Jungle is a Shapeshifter", a near 35-minute co-production with Silent Servant whose fluid beauty is almost breathtaking.
