Under the Arctic Hospital guise, Wisconsin's Eric Bray works a vein of techno that's at once seemingly out of time and now timeless, a melange of approaches from the s -- from classic Detroit techno descended from Derrick May via Plastikman to the early releases on Warp Records especially Autechre before they went completely out of expected bounds -- that recombines to elegant, powerful effect.
At its most energetic and powerful, as on the driving, slick polyrhythms of "Stepping Back" and the stomping blast of "Neon Seven," the album runs off a huge live wire, working against Vampiric Crusader - Lebenswinter - Carved In Wood And Stone restrained minimalism and aggro Ed Banger-style frat-dance in distinct ways.
Meanwhile, the big house-happy drum punch on "Encompass" helps Neon Veils feel like a wonderfully uptempo, vibrant summer record, while "Placement by Air" adds more space and very overt dub Encompass - Arctic Hospital - Neon Veils in the mix, slow pacing against the hyperdrive of the beat that adds enjoyable, unexpected depth to the arrangement.
