Brainwaltzera: ITSAME

In which the anonymous IDM sensation reveals himself to be an iconic video game character. No, actually, this is a sprawling set of synth tracks with non-serious song titles and loads of personality. This comes a little closer to Ilian Tape finely tuned club propulsion than the Rephlex braindance it clearly models itself after, with parts that dip into slo-mo synthwave dizziness (“re: laps (roll with iD)”) and rainy day guitar introspection (“PROVE UR NOT A ROWBOAT [SKIPPER]”). The skittery, sad IDM (“a star is bored”) and glitched-out breakbeat (“tracing Rays [reality glo]”, “ad interim”, “medal headz [G.B.D.F]”) tracks especially deliver the goods, but there’s no lack of quality here.
