Boomkat Product Review:
Dial Records mainstay Pawel aka Paul Komenik follows up nearly a decades worth of 12" singles with his self titled debut album. Those singles were always at least a notch above the crowded fields of minimal house and techno productions, a trait which he carries through to this full-length, arranging subtly complex dancefloor grooves anchored by a melancholy ear for clean and sparse melodies suited as much to engrossed headphone listening as club consumption. 'Panamerican' opens with a nod to the phasing marimbas of Steve Reich's 'Music For 18 Musicians', while 'Dawn' flutter with classic techno synthlines reminiscent of Mathew Jonson and the lilt of 'Coke' gives off a decidedly African feel. On the albums lightest point 'Mate' he gives prominence to delicately wispy electronics over the kickdrum, while a swerve into Byetone style electrostep on 'Muscle' doesn't quite hit the mark of his peer. Now that Pantha Du Prince has jumped ship to Rough Trade, Pawel could probably lay claim to releasing one of its best albums this year.
