  • Description Following his auspicious Thoughtless debut, Soft Spoken Trees, the mysterious Platypus returns with three fresh productions that emphasize his knack for organic arrangements supported by polished production. Argyle is a snapshot of cutting edge modern deep house, off-kilter organs pulsing along with insistent bass, hypnotic bells and syncopated percussion before the voice of Platypus himself croons, "How many times must we shift reality?" Seeking to answer this peculiar question, Montreal's Stefny delivers a deftly minimized after-hours interpretation laced with the psychotropic sound design that's helped define her work for Contexterrior and Archipel. The Streets Have A Voice adopts a more tough-minded approach, stealthily navigating overgrown sonic back alleys before turning the corner on more than one surprisingly expansive vista. Affin label boss Joachim Spieth isolates the sparingly used dub techno chords lurking in the background of the original to construct a robust remix that invokes the shape of a vast, well-calibrated machine - and seems likely to get clubs moving in much the same fashion. Rounding up the release, Glassy Eyed Girl displays the abundant musical talents of our duck-billed mammal, juxtaposing a wealth of harmonic concepts with off-kilter garage rhythms in a dynamic arrangement for headphones and dance floor alike. Further cementing his status as one of the most exciting artists to emerge in the past year, we can't wait to hear what Platypus does next...
