Arriving on TXT after releases on Japanese label Symbolic Interaction and Rednetic Recordings, Wil Bolton (Hibernate, Time Released Sound and Home Normal) and Mark Streatfield (Cement, Ambidextrous and Uncharted Audio) progress their Anzio Green collaborative moniker.
Each previous album had different production techniques and this time with each artist being based either side of the River Lea, it was formed around live sessions at Wil Bolton's East London studio. Utilising a hardware only setup including guitar loops and live processing, with even the beats programmed live on an Electribe, the whole concept was about creating something fluid and evolving... something that evoked the energy but also calmness of rivers and water.

Mick Chillage appears to be able to master any style with ease. Here Mick returns to immersive electronic soundscapes a la Faxology or (M)odes but with AOC flavours in places. Another solid and moody release. Edit: perhaps a more cyberpunk feel than others.... Pablo Adaskabar
There's a warmth to this album that I love. The melodies are beautifully performed, off the grid with lots of interesting turns, and the effect processing is masterfully dialed-in, creating this really lush and wide sound. Ali Khan
