Manning‘s stream of consciousness flows deep and clear, meandering into fresh territories with the unmistakable resilience of a young producer simultaneously attached and detached from his craft. From the wall-punching glitch-hop grit of “Today” and kaleidoscopic delay of “Sound Check” to the artificial serenity of “Cautionary Tale” and “Waiting for Closure,” the album just drips with beauty throughout. The organic appeal of angelic female vocals, subtle atmospheres, and rich instrumentation is gently atomized by Manning‘s light cybernetic touch and cortex-tickling beat production in a manner that continues to make AI one of the most collectible electronic labels around.
