Since first pricking our collective consciousness back in 2010, John Tye and Pete Fowler's Seahawks project has delivered a string of near-perfect albums. Escape Hatch is their 10th studio set to date, and sees them continue their pursuit of hazy, Balearic-minded downtempo perfection. In turns dreamy, soft-focus, psychedelic and effortlessly horizontal, it sees them meld their usual swirling chords, undulating grooves and atmospheric samples with a variety of influences (most notably classic ambient house, Tangerine Dream, new age synthesizer works, and original Berlin school pioneers). It's colourful, evocative and blissfully loved-up, in keeping with much of the duo's endlessly enjoyable back catalogue.
