Barker: BARKER002

Barker’s first release since the landmark full-length Utility is an even more fleshed-out vision of neo-trance euphoria that still holds back from heading into a full-on rush. “E7-E5” is shining and ever-rising, then “Bent” is a darker and more difficult piece that unexpectedly slips some breakbeats in between its flowing synth cadences and fragmented laser beams. “Polytely” is riddled with icicle-thin, jittery arpeggios which delicately hint at a storm of feelings which are hard to process and logically express, yet they’re rendered with a very distinct sort of clarity. Nothing less than masterful.
