Album Review

CiM – “Do Not Multiply Models” – [Delsin/Ann Aimee Records]

Roland Blunt   2/27/2012   A Library, CD

Compilation of work from Londoner Simon Walley (aka CiM). Two 12-inch EPs and one 12-inch single spanning the years 1999 -2000….originally released on the Delsin and deFocus labels…digitally remastered (by electro-funk artist Dexter) and re-released by the Delsin deep electronica sub-label Ann Aimee (artwork provided by Delta Funktionen). These are gently crafted ambient, techno-tronic transmissions…mechanical, pensive, intricate, angular, paradoxical grooves. Imagine…icy warm, aggressively subtle and futuristically nostalgic beat-scape expressions of machine- elf DJs pressing toward a warm yonder…skipping through the burbling funkmosphere in a synth-esthetic reverie…the harmonious clockwork of the cryo-spheres….air-locked grooves…subdued nano-beats…modem-mentum…synth-sweeps, blips, bleeps, clicks, squeaks and squelches…the articulations and mutterings of a techno-geist.

Tracks # 4, 6, 9 are particularly satisfying, and Track 13 radiates some hip-hop particles. Original Vinyl EP containing Tracks #1-8 in A-Library
