Various - Soma Coma Vol III (4 stars)

Various - Soma Coma Vol III

Glowing ambient melodies here invite you to get horizontal, maybe stare at something moving in slow-motion, and zone out. A soft, melodic flip-side to the label’s techno and electro releases, it’s best enjoyed in one long spaced-out chunk, like an aural massage . Brief reminders of last night’s beats grow out of Alex Smoke’s epic ‘Prima Materia’, a slow-building, orchestra-backed slice of drama, while ‘Florence’ from Glasgow’s Marco Benardi, aka Octogen; and bleeping pulses from Slam on ‘Subject Invisible’ channel a smoothed-out, more tuneful Autechre. Cheaper than a trip to a flotation tank.
