Craig Morrison and Graeme Reedie of Scotland’s Silicone Soul recently celebrated their 10th year on the Soma label, and this self-titled offering from the duo is just one more prize to add to the jackpot. With roots steeped in acid house and minimal techno, the two no doubt have their ears tuned for today’s dancefloors, whisking bass-dipped productions thoroughly into drug-addled atmospheres. “Koko’s Song” starts the album off nicely with a midtempo drum stomp and a guitar loop while an ambient whir drones on in the backdrop. Follow-up tracks “Call of the Dub” and “The Pulse” have more of an ambient tech-house sheen to them, with hints of horn and train whistle tossed into the stew.
