Elusive, soft-focus techno; rippling, sun-blanched house ... you can tell Journeymann Trax is a 1080p artist without even looking. Bobby Draino has released some excellent records but he's never sounded so groove-attuned as he does on "Smoke Tape". Funky drums are backlit by synths that fluoresce in pastel shades and even at their hardest hitting ("Inside", "Dengue") the rhythms never feel overbearing. Oh, and D. Tiffany and Khotin climb aboard for three lush collaborations too. Lovely.
Favorite track: Arboreal Harp Jam (ft. Khotin).
