Boomkat Product Review:
Gimmik finally return with their long awaited new album for the Toytronic label, a rich, nostalgic look at warm IDM at its trickiest. The production harks back to the earlier Load : Error and Rhythmus Der Stadt EP’s, sinking in with a definitive “Artificial Intelligence” slant that has gained them such an avid following over the last 5 or so years. The title’s alusion to a return to basic principles serves the album well across it’s well formed sequence of 11 tracks, developing a look at microscopic beat constructions and chopped-up percussive arrangements that fit in easily with the warm, melodic synths and tones that offer themselves up at the front. The result is another excellent collection – welcome back Gimmik, welcome back Toytronic.
