Moiré 'No Future' (Ghostly International)

Moiré certainly has a distinctive sound: bumping house basslines, classic techno synths and lo-fi sounds contrasted with an overall hi-def sheen, all given a dark, gloomy mood and frequently slowed down to a crawl. Here, he’s brought more voices into the mix in the form of looped-up verses/phrases from leftfield d’n’b stalwart MC DRS and spoken word star James Massiah, but these feel like an extension of the introspective grooves more than a departure. A track at a time, it’s great, but the absolute consistency gets wearing over the course of a whole album. Weirder tracks such as ‘System 100’ break the routine a bit, but it’d be nice to hear Moiré’s huge production skill with more variation of tone. Joe Muggs
