About this item

Producer, DJ and NTS resident Illum Sphere (Ryan Hunn) returns to Ninja Tune with his second full length ‘Glass’. An album stretching nine dynamic but focused tracks reminiscent of Helena Hauff and Kassem Mosse.

Hunn replaces the sharp turns and drastic shifts in altitude of 2014’s ‘Ghosts Of Then And Now’ with mechanical depth and a beating cohesiveness hinted at on his ‘Second Sight’ and ‘Spectre Vex’ 12”s. It’s a shift that’s bled into his acclaimed DJ sets and recent mixes for fabriclive and Dekmantel, previously drawing support from Benji B, Thom Yorke, Ben UFO and NTS.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: On this striking sophomore offering Illum Sphere fuses regimented drum machines and spectral techno with late night ambience and icy coldwave to create an audio snapshot of a lonely winter in Berlin.
