Ape Into Jam man Jamie Paton has been rather quiet of late, with his last vinyl excursion appearing on Stuart "Chuggy" Leath's [Emotional] Especial label some two years back. This surprise return sees the former Cage & Aviary member deliver a pair of analogue-rich, new wave-influenced instrumental dubs for those who like their electronic music sparse and trippy. A-side "Telefutura" is a pitched-down treat; a spine-tingling fusion of chugging drum hits, heavy sub bass and gently bubbling synthesizer melodies. Flip for the dub-fuelled B-side "Blind Summit", where woozy, mid-range synthesizer melodies cluster around loose, jazz-fuelled drums and a fluid electronic bassline.
