Former DK7 and The Mighty Quark member Mark O'Sullivan was something of a mainstay of the Irish techno scene throughout the noughties, producing a string of well-regarded singles. His recording career peaked in 2009 with the release of debut album Fragments From a Long Country. Here the album gets a deserved reissue, allowing a new generation of techno and house heads to enjoy its multiple charms. Musically, it's aged impressively well. Certainly, O'Sullivan's trademark sound - a mixture of rolling techno beats, throbbing electronics, IDM and electro influences, and melodic elements more often found in deep house - feels surprisingly current. More importantly, the album still sounds great all these years on.
