MORGAN PAGE Drifting Into View (Nordic Trax) Rating: NNNN Rating: NNNN
A relative newcomer to the tech-house scene, Boston's Morgan Page has been causing a stir lately. Drifting Into View is his first full-length album, and it's an impressive set of mellow, organic, melodic techno. His rhythm programming is fluid, sounds natural and is complemented beautifully by gentle, airy chords and textures. Accessible, yet not dumbed down for mass consumption, Drifting Into View has been constructed by Page for across-the-board appeal, neatly combining atmospheric downtempo, bouncy minimal techno and smooth, streamlined house grooves into a cohesive artistic statement.
