The 12” version of Zero Circle features five tracks:
‘Ring Cycle’ has an ambient air; birds tweet at the start and it moves into an open sweet synth refrain which loops over and over. Dreamy and atmospheric, soaring chords drift over you like the soundtrack to an epic sci-fi film.
The live version up next has what sound like waves and a piano sound, the gentle trance beat comes in but it still somehow retains an epic feel because of the live guitar sound.
The first two versions of 'Ring Cycle' are the ones to listen to, the remixes not doing too much of interest with the material, nothing that can trump the lovely soothing quality of the originals anyway.
It’s not often that Room Thirteen reviews dance music, but this ambient dreamy soundscape caught our attention and on this rare occasion we’re giving it the thumbs up.
