Billowing, cloudy modular ambience from gearcore survivor Khotin. Like early AFX and more recent TM404 material, but more Canadian.

Last year, Dylan Khotin-Foote released “Area 3”, a short album of modular sketches and meditations that added a new dimension to his output. “Amb” is its followup, and builds on its predecessor’s pastoral landscapes, dripping subtle rhythms and sequences into the levitating cauldron of reverberating pads.

It’s nothing particularly new, but Khotin’s uncynical approach makes the record an enjoyable diversion, at the very least.
