"Starting Back" CD
Genre: electronica, new age
Heal is the alter ego of French former
industrial performer Laurent Perrier (Nox), who used to
run the experimental Odd Size label and has recently started up the
more techno-focused Sound on Probation imprint. Starting Back
is his latest effort under this moniker, and it follows a relatively
straightforward electronica vein. A good use of stereo sound, some
complex beats and enjoyable synth melodies round out this fine album,
which is kind of like New Age meets Aphex Twin and Autechre.
On a good sound system this would absolutely destroy you if you were
stoned, which speaks to the complexity Heal is able to
muster up. Recommended: stereo sound and high volume.
