Vancouver's Granny'Ark (Michele Irving) displays an extremely delicate touch with her minimal experimental techno on this stylish four-song sampler. Irving produces expansive waves of filtered, swirling ambient textures and glistening yet urgent keyboard shards, then sneaks in a taut 4/4 or intricate percussive loop beneath. Fans of Kid 606 or Aphex Twin's early glitchy soundscapes should board this Ark.
