Placid One - Slow Motion Race - Further Electronix
Belgian producer Maximilien Vincent knows how to serve up superbly downtempo ambient acid tracks that bathe you in glorious sound. Tinged with a little 90s nostalgia but never overbearingly so, he is back now with more of his soothing sounds on the Furthur Electronix label. Slow Motion Race kicks off with a vocal that could be from a Pet Shop Boys record and a beat that sounds very Moby. 'Summer Rains' then soars on a celestial breakbeat with more distant acid textures and 'Ambivalent' dips its toe into a more dark jungle sound but stuffed with sonic details for the mind.
