Claro Intelecto: Metanarrative (CD, Modern Love, March 2008)

40 minutes of warm, melodic, dubby, huggy techno. It's not going to set any dancefloors on fire, and it's not going to win any prizes for experimentation. But when I pop this on the headphones, it makes me happy for a while, and that ain't too bad. It has the soft (I believe the term is 'padded') bass tones and effortless vibe of dub techno, but without the bleakness of Basic Channel, and with a more gently propulsive beat. Quietly cheering.

I bought this from Boomkat. They file it under Techno / House.
