  • Description After debuting his False Image project with Tom Clark on Get Physical, Pred returns home to Thoughtless for his first solo release of 2013. On Loss for Words, thick analog bass provides the backdrop for a mosaic of hypnotic vocal snippets that for all their abstraction still manage to pull off an absorbing narrative, supported firmly by Noah's robust drum programming and peripheral atmospherics. Tim Xavier returns to the label with a remix that begins drenched in tense ambience and submerged with an undertow of lumbering rhythms, twisting Pred's FM synth work into a tide that finally breaks with the beat's arrival midway through. Meanwhile, fellow Canadian ex-pat Hrdvsion turns in a monstrous breakbeat rework that builds a new hook from the smoldering ashes of the original, ominous bass and expansive pads combining to elicit the strongest elements of classic electro while remaining distinctly fresh; in turn, his Boomboom version retains an identical arrangement while swapping the rhythms for a standard 4/4 pattern. Finally, Left Unsaid sets its pace with interlocking chords, working an intricately processed vocal phrase atop a bass-heavy mix that spills over with creative percussion. While Pred may not be known for working with vocal samples, his ability to invoke a sense of drama through the intensely manipulated voices on offer leaves us at a loss for words...
