Boomkat Product Review:
'A Certain Distance' marks the return of Lusine to the frontline of dreamy electronic techno-pop on Ghostly International. It's been a long time coming, five years since his last LP 'Serial Hodgepodge' to be precise, but also worth the wait for his many fans who fell in love with his heartwarming harmonics and slow burning electronic soul. Recent single 'Two Dots' is simply classic laptop pop styles, melding skittering beats with effervescent keys and a daisy fresh vocal to massively appeal to fans of Apparat. 'Thick Of It' crafts tender electro-pop with vocodered vox and uplifting chord arrangements, while 'Twilight' works again with vocalist Vilja Larjosto whose delicate but dextrous delivery perfectly suits his gentle aesthetic. Those looking for his dancefloor friendly rhythms will love the swaying centrepiece 'Baffle' and the Matthew Dear-burnished house of 'Every Disguise' or 'Crowded Room' before the standout moment 'Gravity' weaves hiccuping vocals into a deep grooved ambient hiphop rhythm. Highly Recommended.
