Berlin's Robert Henke is on top of his game on Silence, bringing his long experience as an acoustic engineer par excellence to bear on explorations into dubstep-inspired grooves. Dark ambient atmospheres part like curtains around metallic sequences that thrum with the uneasy pulse of future-primitivist drum circles; patterns uncoil like fiddleheads, or clatter like ball-bearings on marble floors, lending an exceptionally organic sensibility to such self-consciously electronic sounds. Every listen draws you deeper inside a matrix of sensual sonics and cryptic rhythms.
