About this item

International Feel impressario Mark Barrott returns for 2017 with this four tracker of brand new compositions inspired by life's moonlit moments and the intimacy of night. "Schopenhauer's Garden" opens the set with "Chariot's Of Fire" style sequences, snaking sax licks and naive guitar melodies all treading their soft steps over a vaguelly dubby beat. Reminiscent of Peter Gordon's collaboration with Factory Floor if you play it at 33 (a trademark Patch Balearic secret there), this track warms us up nicely for the rest of the release. The A2 swims through crystal clear new age waters, chasing a irresistibly female with almost the best name out there. The sax makes a welcome return as the synths sing of the man of twists and turns driven time and again off course, much like Barrott himself in fact. Over on the B-side, "Mokush?" carries us through the neon lit night-time streets of Tokyo on swelling bass synths, spaced out sine waves and trance inducing tones. The naive melodies and opiated electronics continue on EP closer "Lysander" as Barrott composes his own version of Blade Runner's love theme.
