Miwon A to B

  • Words: Dominic Umile
  • Label: City Centre Offices
  • XLR8R Rating: 7/10

Driven by quivering, crisp beats, Miwon's A to B is a bright record that finds the German producer matching his affinity for techno with ornamental, casually evolving melodic pop. The interplay of programmed taps and birdsong at the forefront of A to B speaks well to his angle: This is chipper fare, with artful crescendos bursting reliably after a surplus of layered build-ups. Both "Matchbox" and "Round and Round" play host to a great deal of rustling background clatter at the onset, before overtly glassy tones à la Kaito or Ulrich Schnauss filter in overtop. Miwon exhibits a too-rare acumen with atmospheric nuances, but he tempers it mindfully, steering clear of the trance pop that lingers around the bend.
