Pantha Du Prince & The Bell Laboratory - 'Elements Of Light'

8 / 10 German electronic dude Hendrik Weber has been doing the minimalist techno thing for a decade, achieving international props with 2010’s softly pulsating ‘Black Noise’. On ‘Elements Of Light’ he’s honed those chiming shapes to create a gentle odyssey with the help of a bell carillon. A what? Well, it’s a three-ton instrument made up of 50 bronze bells that clangs away, melding with caressed synths to conjure subtle dancefloor bliss. ‘Spectral Split’ is the pick, 17 minutes of tropical marimba, but the seamless whole is a joy, locking you in as you float downstream.
