Tech house with a twist.
The title track is the choice cut. It throws an old-school organ vamp above a tight drum loop, with liberal hand percussion and pads that make you feel like you're sailing through the sky. It's precise but breezy, a quality shared by the other highlight, "Orbital," which coasts on big chord swells that dissolve into the taut groove. "Polaris," which is more layered, works with psychedelic loops the same way. That leaves "Static Dancer," whose tireless thrust is a little too big room for my tastes. The rest of Metroid shows a producer zeroing in on what he does best: tech house with a twist.
