Think Boards of Canada, yet a little more 'immature' as in; more playful and less strict, but with comparisions in atmosphere and ambiance, recognizable melodies and unconscious attraction. Think instant satisfaction as in Vitalic, without the power, rather the beforementioned playfulness and the noticable freshness.

These comparision are big, I know. You got to show something immense to measure up to these. Nathan Fake does it.

I popped my cd in, I was waiting for something extemely average since I never seen any exposure or much of critical acclaim surrounding this record.

Sure, people say "This stuff is pretty good". But 'pretty good' is almost equal to 'I quite like it, but I have thousand of records I'd rather hear'. 'Pretty good' doesn't do this record any justice.

As soon as the record started playing, I knew I hit the jackpot. How can something like this still be a secret these days? I am pretty picky if it comes to music, and sure, this doesn't have a life-changing impact, but if "Drowning In A Sea of Love" doesn't reach any 'Top 5 of 2006' lists this year I certainly lost my faith in today's music listeners.

The playfulness of "Stops", the nostalgia of "Charlie's House", the epic feel of "The Sky Was Pink" and the comfort of "You Are Here", it's all there. There are no fillers, the quality among the tracks are almost equally brilliant, and each mood can be satisfied with at least one of these songs.

It's a bit short, I admit. You can only dream of a record like this being longer. It's a shame Amazon couldn't get there hands on some samples, because I'm sure any clip from one of these songs would be outstanding.

Perhaps this music is right up my alley, perhaps it's just the disappointment I'm trying to fill for 2006's music line-up, or perhaps this record is just remarkably good. I think it's the last.

'Drowning in a Sea of Love' is the inevitable result of Fake's basement-style scientific experimentations. He wasn't just being sarcastic when he produced 'Bored of House' in 2004. The beat and synth samples throughout this debut album are quite fresh. The way he tweeks and plays with tempo loops before a break for example is also somewhat unprecedented. This entire sound is very fresh. If you wish to escape into an interesting, colorful, and deep environment, get this album, or any of the Border Community productions for that matter.

N O W : depending on what kinda beats get your feet stompin', this may not appeal to everyone as a dancefloor-type sound. It certainly does to me, but I've been listening to techno for over 10 years. What I like about this album is that there is a considerable amount of ambient tracks thrown together in such a well-timed and beautiful way. I've listen to this album on a plane, in my studio, with friends, on my iPod, and it suits all of these situations quite well. I would love to see Fake live and hear him mix like he did on BBC Radio1's Essential Mix. This is the type of sound I was waiting for and expecting from this brilliant young producer. Well done Nathan!

i understand that many people are of the opinion that this album was ground breaking. are you kidding me? this album is blasé and uninspired. listen to chris clarks's clarence park for a comparable album that is thousands of times better and 5 years older.
