Kangding Ray - Solens Arc

Review

Solens Arc by Kangding Ray

New album from Kangding Ray joins the dots between techno and ambient

On fourth album Solens Arc, Kangding Ray (real name David Letellier) combines moments of tough, tuneful techno and rich, grainy ambience to great effect. The twelve tracks ebb and flow satisfyingly with plenty of contrasting moments of gnarly beats washing into spacious soundscapes. It's the more upbeat moments, like Evento and Amber Decay that stand out though, the latter in particular reminiscent of Shed's I Come By Night. What a ride... and a really listenable one too!
