EDITORS’ NOTES

During their stunningly varied and adventurous career, Andy Turner and Ed Handley have issued a string of releases that have shaped the vanguard of British electronic music. With Reachy Prints, Plaid offers a striking follow-up to 2011’s Scintilli, presenting deeply textured electronic grooves, vivid melodies and ethereal production. After opening with the delicate shimmer of “Oh” and the understated, fluttering groove of “Hawkmoth”, the album takes a dark turn with the warped bass synths and lurching, insistent patterns of “Nafovanny”. The blithe “Matin Lunaire” brightens things up, while the duo’s dusky tracks—include the looming, bass-heavy fog of “Ropen” and the funky closer, “Liverpool St”—help make Reachy Prints a rousing success.
