Boomkat Product Review:
The final emission from Darren Durham (a real-life tongue-twister if we've ever heard one...) under his Fortdax moniker before disbanding and splitting himself into an amoeba like slew of new pseudonyms. Following his last album's propensity to get filed under 'ambient' (a situation Durham blames on shoddy mastering), 'Divers' has a simple instruction festooned within; PLAY LOUDER. Doing just that, what immediately strikes you is the lack of somersaulting synths which have tended to be liberally spread throughout his past work, with opening track '1909 (Pour Mme. Emile Mouillere)' a crackling smog of tape-hiss 'n' piano which conjures a smoky atmosphere that is a country mile from the massed ranks of 'ambient'. Into more familiar territory on the following 'As Birds Angle In', Durham indulges his love of grandstanding set-pieces; with the gleaming chords, rubbery drums and fizzing strings coalescing into something Air would be proud of. Elsewhere, 'Prozess Wolf' is a fidgeting breakbeat-platter in the style of Radioactive Man's more starry-eyed output, 'C Conceit, Knot Point, Hanging...' takes gurgling field-recordings and shackles it to a mournful piano, whilst 'A Beverly Mythic' cracks open a much-loved cask of harpsichord and gets busy. Fort Knocks!
