Offering up the kind of subterranean exploration that Jules Verne could only dream about, this fourth appearance by Murmur on the forever spacious Meanwhile label is a micro-masterpiece. Taking the Techno/House templates of Deep Chord and Basic Channel, Murmur have injected a depth and soul to their recordings that pays respect to the masters with a classic take on effervescent 4/4. Maybe this is down to their studio techniques; using all analogue gear and avoiding the digital fetishism that has plagued recent techno recordings, or possibly it's down to their obsessive attention to harmonic and melodic detail which makes the tracks so hard to forget. Kicking off with the sublime rolling tech-house of 'Section' - cascading with thick, warm glowing pads, punctuated by a no-nonsense 808 groove, the 12" closes with 'Nub' - an abstract slice of classic, unadulterated underwater dub. Another flawless twelve from one of the best techno labels of recent times.
