On the cutting edge of "intelligent techno" . . .

"Vapourspace is on the cutting edge of "intelligent techno" alongside Aphex Twin, Moby, and labelmate Orbital. Like Aphex Twin and Moby, Vapourspace is one person, Mark Gage, arming a battery of electronics, drum machines and devices, capturing a fine range of moods and effects. Tracks such as "Steam" and "Worm" more than hint at industrial, while "Angel" and "Sleep" (especially the latter) suggest ambient. There is a lot in between.Nice followup to "Themes from Vapourspace." DJ's, pay attention: track 6, "Rays," has definite dancefloor destruction potential!"
