Ruhig (newborn project of Audiolouis from Natch Records) debuts on Midgar with a deeply atmospheric mini-album composed by five tracks plus one Intro on the flip side. The record opens with 'Lost In The Instability', a sophisticated ensemble of crumbled beats, gloomy synths and bass-lines that well anticipate the edgy tendencies of the release; while 'Nibelheim' completing the first side, gives a modern and well balanced interpretation of the most groovy and dancefloor dedicated dub/deep techno rhythmics. The B-side features a short heavenly intro 'Alba' right before the deeply esoteric 'Stillness' a sonorous monument assembled by epic jams and bright entrancing sirens. Following, the highly saturated 'Pulse Width', an elegant but yet severe sequence of intangible smithereens and glitches blown away by sidereal winds. 'Sister Ray' concludes with a
twisting synthesis of all the release's dominant moods: still dreamy atmospheres, mellow bass and thin hi-hats overall. Midgar keeps exploring the (un)usual fields introduced in its first release, but evolving the approach to a complementary, warmer sound.
