Original Price: $23.00 Sale Price: $17.00 With a cosign from Radiohead under his belt, it comes as no surprise that Ryan Hunn understands how to set a contemplative mood. Much like The King Of Limbs or Thom Yorke’s solo outing The Eraser, this Berlin-based DJ producer’s latest album under the Illum Sphere moniker intimately mines the emotional depths of electronic music, a genre that has thankfully shed its early reputation as inherently cold and unfeeling. From the creeping synthwave of “Wounded” to the emotive techno of “Fall Into Water,” Glass clearly comes from a place of self-reflection, and maybe even spirituality. Far from clinical or academic, the album recalls the sort of sonic generosity of Aphex Twin’s ambient outings, though it never succumbs to a retro mode for so much as a second. Thought Hunn deliberately shifts away from the more dancefloor-centric conventions of his DJ sets, he hasn’t exactly exited the club. “Thousand Yard Stare” effortlessly imbues his headphone electronica with a gratifying percussive thump, while “Red Glass” douses its driving rhythm with subtle white noise and luxe melodic adornments.
