There’s more weight in some of these tracks than the ugliest sludge. Favourite highlights include the unforgettable cover of The Cure’s 1980 track A Forest by Alva Noto, released  on April 8. 2020, exactly Forty years from its release in the UK.
I am always in awe of GAS intoxicatingly sinister work which has propelled album after album around a sound ranging somewhere between Schönberg and Kraftwerk, between bugle and bass drum, surely one of the most addictive sounds I know in Electronic music.
The mix finishes with a beautiful track from Jóhann Jóhannsson’s classic IBM album, another great contemporary composer who sadly left us too god damn early.
