008/100: "Glider" by The Sight Below
One of my favourite sub-genres of electronic music is techno. I love deep, expansive, synthy soundscapes married to the trademark 4-4 beat ... I find can easily lose myself in its beautiful expression.
I was therefore delighted when I found out about “The Sight Below”, an ambient techno project from Rafael Anton Irisarri. His 2008 release - “Glider” - on the seminal Ghostly International label ticks all my boxes: exquisite ambience from manipulated guitars rather than synths ... combined with the familiar techno rhythm.
I find the ambient and techno elements of “Glider” work well together to provide a truly immersive experience.
