You may know Ilkae from previous releases on Monotonik and also on awesome, now dormant Miamibased physical label Merck. Well, four years after 2004’s beautiful Stained Glass Confetti, backing up a self-released full-length, Ilkae returns with a similar deal – an awesome EP extracting from a new album.
This time, ‘Lighter Industry’ is a companion piece to the new, limited-edition Ilkae album ‘Light Industry’, which those interested in the beautifully scattershot, chiptune-ish idm that the veteran artist deals in can check out at – http://www.inpuj.net/ilkae/ to buy the full-length.
As for this EP, it starts out with the deliciously semi-random ‘LSK’, before lapsing into the more relaxed with the fizzy ‘Magnesium’. Other highlights include ‘Espirit De Corps’, which is almost Aleksi Eebenesque in its pure indirectness, and the grin-inducingly named ‘Endless Bark’, all phasing ambient yum. Fanks, Ilkae!
