Daniel Avery - 'Song For Alpha'

8/10

Returning five years after the release of his incredible debut album 'Drone Logic', euphoric techno heavyweight Daniel Avery has reemerged to deliver his long-awaited follow-up 'Song For Alpha'. And unlike the majority of material on his first full-length, this sophomore outing sees him take on a more blissful angle this time around, opting for a more laid-back approach on every track.

When you first switched onto 'Drone Logic', you were met with this swelling and pounding beat that filled every fibre of your being. But 'Song For Alpha' likes to see itself as slipping under a warm blanket rather than an initial onslaught of power. The album begins with a selection of ethereal wonders before slowly turning up the gauge as it plays, resulting in this beautiful rising sound that moves and flows near perfectly.

It may seem like a far sight from his first outing but 'Song For Alpha' still manages to pack a punch when it needs to. Its positively engaged nature makes for an uplifting listen and confirms Avery as one of the best producers working today.
