The two versions of the title track summon the sort of resplendent moments we've come to expect from this crew. Suffused with evocative pads, AWB's original is a spacious broken-beat cut that rides a gentle, wave-like motion. PVNV's eight-minute take on "Celestial Longitude"—my pick of the four—packs a denser, tougher 4/4 arrangement. In place of the original's smooth melodic motifs, there's a collage of vibrant ambiance.
"Ecliptic" takes a longer view. It assembles layers of chugging percussion and travels through a couple of dramatic, synth-driven builds and releases, but the overall effect is more playful than typical dark-and-moody fare. Last is Shlømo and Antigone's rhythmically intense remix, which shows off some high-tech, sharp-edged sound design in the treble. It's a fine finish to another good one from Taapion.
