Lorenzo Senni's inspired Presto!? imprint presents one of 2015's most singular electronic albums with the solo debut proper from Theo Burt. Originally written circa 2009/2010, it's an album that was never really intended for public consumption but, thanks to Senni's efforts, is now presented here in all it's hugely individual glory. Perhaps best thought of as avant electro-pop or even some sort of Compute/R&Baroque composition, the Casio phase synth-sculpted arrangements of 'Gloss' elicit some of the strangest, most curious sensations, visceral melodies, harmonic convolutions and polymetric timings you'll likely hear this year. Using only a late '80s Casio phase distortion synth (and a Roland synth on one track), the eight tracks somehow manage to extract an emotive maximalism from a relatively austere, minimalist source by virtue of focussed, methodic research and tactility with the waveform, resulting in unconventional sounds such as the polychromatic slap bass plong in 'B3', or the curdled resonance in 'B1' that catches our sweet spot every time. The fact that it was left alone since 2011, only to be released into a 2015 scene full of producers exploring the integers of dissonance and arrhythmic syncopation - think Arca, Lotic, Gábor Lázár, Lorenzo Senni - goes some way to prove Theo's subtle genius; it really is one of our favourite albums released in 2015 and comes hugely recommended to any listeners drawn to genuinely innovative and forward-thinking electronic music.
