Nic Brown With the release of S Olbricht's Lobster Theremin album "For Perfect Beings" being held up by seemingly interminable pressing plant problems, the almost from nowhere appearance of this absolutely sublime EP on Lee Gamble's UIQ imprint was even this avowed atheist's equivalent of manna from heaven. It's a distillation of everything that makes left-field house some of the most transportive music around, in fact, I defy anyone to listen to closing track "Floa1" that switches from abstract ambient sensuality to a hypnotic psychedelic beats and balm swirl of loveliness not to feel more relaxed and carefree for having heard it. "ZZM" is house as a route to tranquility and it makes the prospect of "For Perfect Beings" even more seductive than was previously the case. Favorite track: Floa1.

    Budapest scene lynchpin, S. Olbricht debuts on Lee Gamble’s UIQ with a sweetly compatible quartet of chiming ambient techno and woozy house trax.

    These tracks rank among S Olbricht’s most seductive and hypnagogic. From the Terence Dixon-like harmonic suspension systems of 137x3brk and the ruddier, out-of-reach rumble and flickering rim shots embedded in the chasmic headspace of Ktyring on the A-side, thru to wire-woolly texture and glowing chord filaments laced into the 110bpm slug, J_UC. Finally, the gracefully tilted techno elevation Floa1 which could easily be mistaken as the work of label boss Lee Gamble closes the rotations of side B.
