- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: ~scape
Pulling no proverbial punches and deftly delivering just what you need, ~scape issues another opus of majestic electro dub. The distinctive difference with Portable‘s Alan Abraham lies in his treatments of Leo Fernandez‘s guitar-owing to his South African roots, he meshes it with fragments of African percussion. His background is most notable on the tribal "Ebb And Flow," the polyrhythmic "Thought in Action" and the aural downpour of "Typhoon," although a few tracks lack the scintillating charisma of Version‘s apexes. With luck, the next version shall remedy this.
