SINGLE OF THE WEEK
Texas fella Skyler McGlothlin does his bit in contributing to Planet-Mu’s finest run of releases to date, Nautilis capturing the electronic mood of the moment perfectly, and adding a few sparkling twists of its own just for good measure. ‘Sketches..’ shines from end to end across 6 tracks of melodic and gently abrasive melodies, beats and rumbles. ‘Rachesta’ opens us up to classic IDM (oh how we hate the word) - expertly produced

excellent taster for the marvellous 'are you an axolotl' album. it may be yer standard electronica fare, but rarely has it sounded as fresh as it does here. opener 'rochesta' fuses a beautiful arrangement around squeaking drum machines to great effect. '888' ups the ante with a mutated breakbeat and repeat-fire vocal triggers. 'the breaks vol.2' is a staggering slice of downtempo hip-hop.
'plunder' strays from the formula slightly with a loose experimental
