Mark Fell N-Dimensional Analysis

Mark Fell N-Dimensional Analysis
8
Having lately released material on esteemed labels such as raster-noton, Editions Mego and the latter's Sensate Focus imprint, Mark Fell follows Powell's excellent Fizz twelve-inch onto Liberation Technologies, Mute's sub-label for cutting-edge electronic releases. Consisting of 14 parts divided into two sections, N-Dimension Analysis continues that same precision-crafted microhouse that Fell started with his lauded Sensate Focus series. What's striking about Fell's recent music is how seamlessly he manages to meld his more experimental, academic approach with a sense of swing and groove, which, raster-noton artists such as Kangding Ray aside, is a marriage all too rare. N-Dimension Analysis is a superb release of crisp, stuttering braindance [It's a genre - ed.], standing out easily amongst the hordes of lazy maximalists, and the clinical precision of Fell's music feels like a breath of fresh air amongst the half-remembered retro-mania affecting other house releases du jour. Just the first two breathtaking seconds of "Sections 1-7" are enough proof that very few electronic producers are pushing electronic music forward as much as Mark Fell. (Liberation Technologies)
