Compound Eye If you're going to make an 80s synth-pop album, the only way to do it is full-on with complete disregard for personal safety. With Aeriform, Chris has created a work of genius, a thumping monster of retro delight - from the 'Crash Head' era Mark Shreeve stylings of 'Fade' & the straight-to-VHS guilty pleasure of 'Fire' to the unashamedly boppy 'Hype'. Fab stuff! Favorite track: Fade.

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Christopher Adam Reeves has been producing as The Gasman since 2003, most notably for Planet Mu (his album from 2008, Superlife, stands out as a game changer), here he steps up on Onomatopoeia Records for a brand new record in Spring 2016. Aeriform represents his seventeenth full length LP, a startling exercise in gauzy bass-pumped disco, emotive synth pop, Dam funky electronic boogie, retro-tastic rave NRG, and hazy BoC dream ambient. Twelve tracks, each bringing something different, something solitary – that is The Gasman, here to fix your (ear)pipes. - Bleep.com

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Former Planet Mu affiliate Christopher Reeves continues his electronic journey as The Gasman, delivering his umpteenth album in 13 years. Aeriform isn't far removed from work by other Mu luminaries such as founder Mike Paradinas' strangely engaging bob-and-weave synth-antipop or a certain Richard James, truth be told.

    Essentially though, Reeves mines a far more retro seam than his counterparts - titles like Syntax, Trip and Zports suggest there's an element of geek and a love of the ZX Spectrum, BBC Computers and Nintendo from Aeriform's creator. The opening Fade is a gloriously lush melodic disco-house piece that recalls Bent, 808 State and Plaid during their '90s heydays, while Trip peps things up a bit in the style of Code-era Cabaret Voltaire or early Mu-ziq.

    Closing pair AT4 and Hype continue this trend, leaving the rest of the album to ferment as a heady brew of pretty melodies, motorik mid-tempo bouncers and the occasional deviation into ambient house, replete with snares and kick-drums straight out of a cheap Roland and glistening synths that chatter and shimmer like some urban dawn chorus.
