Boomkat Product Review:
Arriving seemingly moments after summer's florid 'Under~Between', 'Keep Going... Under' finds Dialect in a weightless space, augmenting jazzy improvisation with subtle cybernetic webs of vaporwave-influenced synthesis.
When he revisited material recorded with Daniel Thorne's Immix Ensemble to come up with "Under~Between", Andrew PM Hunt had too many ideas to confine his work to one album. "Keep Going... Under" comes from the same set of recordings, but channeled into deeper crevices, expanding ideas that were too ecstatic for its predecessor, blasting each sound with digital processes that work like compressed air on dried moss.
The Steve Reich-influenced buzz that underpins 'Crypt' gives it a whimsical familiarity that gently evolves into brittle electronics before you even notice what's going on. 'Half Moon' meanwhile offsets jazzy woodwind gusts with bulbous oscillations, using percussion sounds like flickering stars in the distance. Our highlight is 'Mesa', a heartstring-tugger shaped by descending synth bass tones, melancholy strings and delicate, silvered chimes.
Hunt is braver with his references on 'Keep Going...' and decants each unique element into vibrant emotional spaces. If its predecessor was informed by an obsession with Buddhist concepts and animated by an interest in Harold Budd's minimalism, this smooth sequel loosens the release valve, inviting comparisons with ASA-CHANG & Junray, or even Haruomi Hosono.
