2023, 2×12″, Altered Sense. Green marbled vinyl.

Over the last couple of years, music journalist-turned-producer Ben Murphy has notched up a number of must-check releases as BufoBufo, including EPs on Art of Dark, Emotec, PARTOUT and Fina White, and a solid LP on Altered Sense. Here he returns to the latter imprint with a fine four-tracker. He begins by dousing a shuffling breakbeat in IDM chords, rubbery electronic bass and acid lines aplenty on the deep and hazy ‘Comet’, before channelling the spirit of 1990 ‘bleep and breaks’ on the sub-heavy ‘Sun Pillar’. He’s back to his dreamy, deep house-with-breakbeats best on the impeccably atmospheric, sunset-ready ‘Viridian’, before opting for a more glassy-eyed, sci-fi-sounding flex on EP highlight ‘Weatherworker’. – Juno
