about

Anyway, youthful recollections are the deal with the latest album from composer and multi-instrumentalist Riz Maslen, who’s worked as Neotropic since 1994 (previously collaborating with ’90s dance pioneers Future Sound Of London and The Beloved). Plus, in time-honoured Ninja Tune multimedia stylee, an additional CD-Rom includes Maslen’s moody film of the same title.

Neotropic’s great strength remains her wide-eyed fusion of sounds, flitting through lush strings to dub and warbling vocals, gleaning music from background noise. Rather than blatant club stylings, there’s a heavy folk tilt to her electronica here, with ex-Verve guitarist Nick McCabe adding melodies, and highlights including the sweetly whimsical ‘Closer To The Sun’ and excellent conclusion ‘Memories’, which works in a deliciously mellow rap from female Australian MC Shorty.
