Album: Illum Sphere – Glass

illum-sphere

Via The Sound Of Vinyl: Producer, DJ and NTS resident Illum Sphere (Ryan Hunn) returns to Ninja Tune with his second full length “Glass”. An album stretching nine dynamic but focused tracks reminiscent of Helena Hauff and Kassem Mosse.

Hunn replaces the sharp turns and drastic shifts in altitude of 2014’s “Ghosts Of Then And Now” with mechanical depth and a beating cohesiveness hinted at on his “Second Sight” and “Spectre Vex” 12”s. It’s a shift that’s bled into his acclaimed DJ sets and recent mixes for fabriclive and Dekmantel, previously drawing support from Benji B, Thom Yorke, Ben UFO and NTS.

“Glass” is Illum Sphere’s most crystal-clear statement to date following a conscious reduction in output and change in “situation and style,” as he describes it.
