Bovaflux: When There Was Nothing
Buy! - (Highpoint Lowlife)
This is the debut album from this British artist, real name Eddie Symons. It’s a fantastic, beautiful album of ambient and IDM electronic. A video game software programmer by day, Symons’ music has all the attention to detail and complexity one would expect from someone of his ilk. What makes this so good however is that it does not suffer from the overly mathematical machinations of a computer geek wiling away his days staring at lines of code, as so much of this genre often does. To the contrary, this album is full of warmth and emotion and engages on a very human level. One of the best electronic releases of the year. 1/4/2006 - Don Yates
