Having enjoyed something of a career renaissance in recent years, Derek Carr is now releasing some of the finest futurist techno around. Here the Irish producer pops up on Subwax Excursions, following a top-notch 12" for FireScope. Those who love their techno deep, intergalactic and melodious should check impeccable opener "Standing in the Sun", where gentle acid lines weave in and out of a tactile groove and life-affirming chord sequences. Elsewhere, he turns his hand to smooth, glassy-eyed electro positivity ("An Ocean of Stars Between Us") and wraps Larry Heard style melodies around a fizzing Motor City techno groove ("Asteroids"). Throughout, he manages to balance the needs of the dancefloor with his love of far-sighted melodies and daydreaming positivity.
