Touching but remarkably intricate techno.
Take how the beat disintegrates around two minutes in, its thundering kick lost in a scramble of radio static before slamming back into gear. There's also the way the mood shifts between melancholy and menace, as the soft synth tones that float across the mix are severed with sharp, broken percussion and rave vocals. The title track is more in line with Compro's intergalactic sound. The atmosphere is deep and the mood is introspective, with noodling bleeps that recall classic IDM. "TH808" is deeper still, the focus shifting between rolling, scattershot percussion and sombre tones. Like the best electronic music, 808BB is both touching and remarkably intricate—in other words, it's business as usual for Skee Mask.
