With this EP on Seattle-based Further Records, Mosam Howieson effortlessly joins the dots between creeping ambience, intergalactic IDM, and the growling intensity of experimental techno. For the most part, it's a becalmed concoction, with "Spiral 3", in particular, showcasing the kind of immersive, quietly dreamy ambience that takes great influence from the mixed-down rhythms and heavy bass of dub techno. "Spiral 4" is, if anything, even more inspired, with bubbling rhythms underpinning Howieson's impeccable chords and subtle melodies. Best of all, though, is "Spiral 7", which is blessed with the kind of intense melancholy that both stirs the emotions and demands repeat listens. Impressive stuff, all told.
