Duff Egan a great headspace to groove with room to think and reflect. Love the old-school timbres and 90's IDM spirit with a refreshing modern character of its own. Mr. Chillage benefits the galaxy with this funk. Favorite track: Waveshape Emotion.

Arch-texturologist Mick Chillage sidesteps ambient phraseology to present on Anodize his new contemporary electro project, The Shape, every bit as thrilling and energizing as Dopplereffekt, John Carpenter & Alan Howarth, Mr. Velcro Fastener and Anthony Rother. Unlike his colleagues, Chillage manages to tweak the formula a turn or two, resulting in some nimble synth parabolas riding atop steely, corkscrew rhythms.

UK electronic musician Chillage should be no stranger to followers of Anodize. His presence has not only graced the label via last year's stunning Autumn of Communion 2 project (in collaboration with Lee Anthony Norris), but also this month's excellent ambient travelogue "Pixels", already sold out and now the stuff of collectors' shelves and fortunate enthusiasts worldwide.

The Shape is a unique work in Chillage's canon, however, displaying a markedly different musical persona, one wholly enamored with the taut percussive vortices of classic electro. Where others bow mercilessly to the tyranny of the beat, Chillage one-ups the game: the grand and grimy cinema audio verité of Carpenter and Howarth's synth fantasias loom large in Chillage's visor, but uninterested in mere copyism, The Shape gnarls his vintage electronics into a whiplash frenzy bent to its own pretzel logic.
