Born out of a collaborative jam after Freerotation 2012, The High On Wye Quintet finds Move D, Juju & Jordash, Soulphiction and Steevio merging their considerable range of hardware to conjure up three pieces of adventurous techno that moves in the outer fringes of electronic music. "Cedar of Lebanon / Spongy Tree" spreads out across the A side in a slowly unfurling bliss-out of undulating synth lines and a gentle skipping rhythm woven for the quintessential back room bliss-out. "Nant Feinion" has sharper edges to it, even if the searching nature of the ring-modulated lines still remain firmly in the deeper end of the techno spectrum. "No Bones Jones" rounds the EP off in a multi-faceted drift of ambient refinement, letting languid guitars ring out into swelling pads for the perfect mellow finishing move to a sterling EP.
