Reaching Altitude
In terms of appreciation, Lightform’s latest is less a leaper and more creeper. That is unexpected, as ‘Asylum’ (as its title suggests) ain't no wallflower. The build is all fairly so-so: running tech rhythms, drum and perc canter and up-pitching sirens. Into the break, its game gets raised with a tempo shifting dynamic, synths-with-bite and some memorably hooky vocal add-ins. No future classic, but not at all bad.
