The release leads with 'Ghost In Your Bed' which delivers a breakbeat notion while maintaining Phil's trademark of intricate, interweaving synth melodies. The highly charged rhythm creates a breathing pulse as various lead lines take to the fore while others seamlessly fall into the background. It's like the soundtrack to futuristic mass transit; always moving, always forward. The other original track on the release, 'Boobs,' is characterized by a throbbing techno bass line and ring modulated synth patterns. Layers of sound summon the dance floor into its spell as whispered, drawn out voices and swirling melodies permeate the sound-sphere.
A trio of remixes do a terrific job at drawing out hidden elements from Phil Western's originals. Tomas Jirku (Force Inc, basic_sounds) creates the first of a pair of interpretations of 'Ghost In Your Bed' with an energized techno treatment that takes the layered electronics and adds a raw, almost dirty quality. Innerflight artist Spon.10.80 minimizes things just a bit, with a steady bass-and-drum rhythm anchoring a building swell of sonic electricity. Finally, Seattle's Hansen (one half of Jacob London) delivers an evocative rework of 'Boobs' that stalks at a half-time step while Vangelis-like pads and textures wash over the dance floor in a mesmerizing fashion. All of this makes for a top notch package, highlighting another fine accomplishment from Phil Western and Innerflight Music.
