Luke Vibert Lover‘s Acid
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Planet Mu
Like new batteries juicing up a classic Atari console, Luke Vibert‘s trademark obsession with shifting rhythmic sequences makes these gritty, acid-tossed textures sound electrifying again. It‘s this veteran composer‘s keenness for shaping mood, however, that charges up his tracks with feeling; dark, eerie ambiance opens "Prick Tat," only to ebb into something wistful and bittersweet. Traces of Vibert‘s ambient hip-hop persona Wagon Christ and nods to the early work of pals Aphex and µ-Ziq float throughout these melodic pieces like friendly specters. "Analord" and "Come On Chaos," in particular, affectionately revisit a time when techno music was just beginning to emerge in its own right.
