Editorial Reviews

2012 release, the first album from the Electronic artist in over a decade. Photek is a sonic scientist, pushing both his sounds and fans' expectations to the outermost limits since the beginning of Electronic music. He was there when they named it Drum 'n' Bass. There are a handful of artists that lead the way, and even fewer that can define a genre.

Modus Operandi was my first experience of Photek. I still enjoy that album, but I was surprised by how good his latest work is. I normally find myself listening to the likes of Rush (esp. 2112, Hemispheres), Dream Theater (esp. Images & Words), and King Crimson (esp. Discipline). Photek is different, to say the least. Instead of playing music, Photek designs it. His beats are strong and relatively simple. What I think sets him apart is his layering and transitions. He also draws from an amazing variety of sounds. Each song has a unique feel to it and I love how he mixes sounds and moves the music between lulls and crescendos. I can't get enough of songs 1-3, 5, 6, 8, 9. I think 12 "This Love" is the best of the songs with vocals. For some of the other songs with vocals, I feel like he's a bit afraid of mixing in too many sounds alongside the voice. #4 is too soft and atmospheric for my tastes. But, overall, this is an amazing piece of work. Even after many plays, I still find myself coming back and preferring it over Modus Operandi (which I think isn't as creative as Ku:Palm).

This is the best new dance album I've heard in years. I'd say it's fundamentally a house style, but with an updated aesthetic that gives more than a small nod to dubstep. It's tastefully mixed in, though; this isn't some teenager trying to be Skrillex. I've listened to the album several times now and it fits in well with a rotation of Autechre, Orbital, Future Sound of London and other masters of the electronic genre. I agree with the (only?!?) other reviewer: I would go crazy if I heard this in a club!

This is not a drum & bass Photek album. So don't think that going in. I think there is an older album of his "Under the Palms", I thought it was just called "Palms" but anyways it was more slowed-down and downtempo stuff. So what he's done is evolved over time to incorporate those elements, the more accessible tracks off of Modus Operandi like "Hidden" Camera, thrown in some booty house (I kid yoy not) and dub step and everything inbetween for a very interesting and very successful set of tracks. I've decided the only track I don't actually like for some reason is the last one. But what a great surprise to have a really great Photek release! I think you will find that this album grows on you and is very fun to listen to. Foremost I would describe this as a "dance" CD, I would have a blast if someone played this in a mix :)

Photek returns to digital breaks with KU:PALM, not quite getting up to speed, but keeping his own unique vision of electronic music intact. "Signals" kicks things off with some jittery digital electro, while "Quadrant" slows things down, offering up some darkness with an occasional dancehall snare to keep things crisp. "Aviator" sees him returning to mid-tempo house rhythms, though if you're looking for a slammin' floor-filler, it probably won't do the trick (go straight to "Oshun" if you want that), and "Pyramid" has a more syncopated jazz beat to accompany the Middle Eastern strings. But the grandeur of the piano intro of "Munich" stands out even more, even after the beat thumps in. "Quevedo" has an appealing shimmer to it, while "Mistral" goes for the acid. Linche offers her Janis Joplin-esque vocals to the dubstep-inspired "Sleepwalking" (Ray La Montagne will do the same for "This Love") while sampled vocals filter onto "One of a Kind." I'm glad to see Photek continuing to explore different sonic territory at his own pace.
