Boomkat Product Review:
Miami's Isophlux label has already provided a launch pad for electronica heavyweights like Lusine, Lexaunculpt and Gosub, but now the imprint's just limbering up for a second life, having been off the radar since 2001. Isophlux spearheads its return with Anthhiliawaters, a project once described as "breakfast electro" (an odd idea given support by the label's website). This is far more than mere music to eat cereal to: the production taps into a Detroit-influenced vision of the future, with warm, jazzy synth pads supplying a melodic counterpart to the softly crunching, electro-tinged beats. The bizarre breakfast theme rears its head once again on 'Morning Coffee', in which a voice tells you to "wake up" repeatedly. Crazy. Once again though the simplicity and warmth of the production wins out - this is solid home listening fare that allows its warehouse roots to show through just enough to avoid being tarred with an IDM brush.
