David Letellier is in fine form on his latest outing under the Kangding Ray alias. While still inventive and left-of-centre in tone, the four tracks showcased on "Azores" are far less experimental in tone than some of his releases. Of course, there's still a trip into angular, introspective and quietly melodious IDM - see the title track - but for the most part the EP is focused firmly on the dancefloor. Opener "22 Halo" offers a perfect balance between broken techno rhythms and shimmering futurist electronics, "Polygon" is a panicked, intense and mind-altering club thumper and "De Tomaso Pantera" is a wild tribal techno ride through metallic motifs and droning, didgeridoo-style hooks.
