Boomkat Product Review:
Re-mastered 2010 album from Bobby Bird’s Higher Intelligence Agency
Picking up where Bobby Bird’s Birmingham based unit left off in 2000 on a collaboration with Biosphere, the ‘Discatron’ EP takes its title from a unique portable 7” vinyl player invented in Birmingham in the ‘60s, and follows thru with a charmingly retro-futurist sense of nostalgia for the mid ’90s, back when HIA were regulars on Warp’s seminal ‘Artificial Intelligence’ series, and often heard in chill-out rooms and gouchy afters across the UK and beyond.
The five tracks smartly find their find in a new world that can’t get enough of that early ‘90s ambient promise, rolling from the title tune’s supple slow acid and the wavier 313 bent of ‘3P,’ to the slow settling harmonic hues of ‘Colourmotion,’ a shine-eyed kiss of AI lushnuss in ‘B-theory’, and a crunchier Autechrian downstroke on ‘Sound Matter.’
