My Somethingy 10 Tracks of 2011: Laurel Halo – Aquifer

December 14, 2011

Like the sounds of Mr Scruff, NY producer Laurel Halo reminds me of a certain sound of synth music I often heard in boating and other lifestyle TV shows as the 80s packed up and the 90s started their sound check. Less nostalgically, it’s aligned to those years of the early 90s when techno wore an ambient cloak as genres smashed together in the last great big bang of something quite new. Aquifer has been released in a time of retro-post-everything, but these days re-treading the past is to be celebrated if it is as deft as this.
