Album Review Daniel Avery - Song For Alpha

Daniel Avery - Song For Alpha

A documentation of the other side of the clubbing experience.

Rating:

In the five years since its release, Daniel Avery’s debut ‘Drone Logic’ has become a cult classic, one of the most celebrated British techno albums of the 21st Century. On long-awaited follow-up ‘Song For Alpha’ - an album the producer and DJ has said is made for “eyes closed as opposed to hands in the air” - he explores the spaces around the throbbing beats of ‘Drone Logic’. From the sparkling, starry ‘Stereo L’ to the incessant, unrelenting lynchpin ‘Diminuendo’, it turns out there’s just as much wonder to be found here, and sits gorgeously alongside ‘Drone Logic’ as a documentation of the other side of the clubbing experience. It was already clear from his near-decade of huge DJ sets around the world, but this album cements Daniel Avery as one of the best.
