Luke Abbott's first full-length album, Holkham Drones, is a deep dive into synthesizer worship. It maintains a vintage sound that calls back to the work of Kraftwerk, but still holds its own with contemporaries when it comes to adventure and experimentation. From arpeggio odysseys Abbott hasn't so much developed as marinated. He has followed the gentle trajectory of Border Community labelmates like Nathan Fake and label founder James Holden. Five years, a half-dozen or so releases, one album. One album with little fanfare and no obvious banger. Last year's Whitebox Stereo EP impressed but hardly foretold future riches. His bashful, warm-hearted techno moves slowly, but apparently not slow enough Abbott has camouflaged it with the word drones. Abbott hails from Norfolk, England, home of a small village named Holkham. The reference fits. Album 2010 13 Songs. Holkham Drones. Luke Abbott.

It's hard to imagine a more perfect label than Border Community for Norfolk, England's Luke Abbott his delicately convoluted synthesizer music obviously takes after Border Community founder James Holden as well as longtime signees like Nathan Fake. But don't dismiss this as coloring within the lines: Abbott's music is as original as it is colorful, with warbling analog synthesizers tangling up in knots around trim drum programming. Norfolk-based Luke Abbott draws more from minimalism and krautrock than grime, the clean lines of his analogue synth constructions employing steady pulses adorned with sparse bleeps and burring textures. The understated gamelan of resonant metallic synth tones in Trans Forest Alignment recalls the simpler creations of Neu and Harmonia, while the standout opener 2nd 5th Heavy employs loops of high-pitched, guitar-like electronics cycling in and out of sync like an early Steve Reich piece shifting the effect in a warmly satisfying way that never seeks to wrong-foot.
