Best known as Paradox, this is Dev's first Alaska solo EP in several years and it's as cold-yet-alluring as you'd hope. Contrary to the sample on "Solace", Dev Pandya hasn't picked up any bad habits during his near-30 year tenure. As the poignant strings sweep over broad brushed breaks it's clear that he keeps getting better. Flip for the ultimate slo-mo excursion "Earthloop" takes us back to an original beatless trip from his last Alaska LP (The Mesozoic Era) adding quarter speed to give the yearning cosmic synths a sense of momentum. Chilly.
