Brand new 2010 release from IDM guru Wisp!

Reid Dunn, otherwise known as Wisp, is known for epic song structures and Kettel-like playful beats and interesting vocal samples. The man is signed to Richard D. James’ (Aphex Twin) Rephlex label, responsible for an enormous amount of high quality electronic music.

We Miss You could be seen as a continuation of Wisp’s 2009 record The Shimmering Hour: full of energetic rhythms set on a well laid out foundation of awesomeness. It’s crazy how similar this record is to its predecessor. That’s not, of course, to say that it’s a dull and uninspired effort, au contraire, this album represents the cream of the crop in recent IDM releases, complete with Wisp’s signature style of creating obscenely orgasmic beat work.

Seen in the above clip from Youtube, Morning Myth is the first track of fourteen. It starts out slowly with a somewhat warped vocal sample, and then moves to collect more sounds to add to its arsenal of Awesome™.  We Miss You is actually pretty healthy in duration, clocking in at just over an hour and fifteen minutes. Other highlights include To Draw Something Beautiful, We Are Like You, Bottoms up, Charlie Longfeet, Lords & Ladies, and Moss on Stone.

The whole album is very, very well done and very competent in its approach, making for yet another fine release from Rephlex. To be frank, I wasn’t expecting another record from him so soon from his last! And of course, if you like it, please buy it. It’s only £6.25 / ~$10 USD from the newly added online Rephlex webshop.

Can’t wait for a physical copy to come out.
