The Air Be­tween Words Ninja Tune ★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC - JIM CAR­ROLL

Dutch pro­ducer Mar­tyn Deyk­ers strikes you as a man with no de­sire to be pinned down. Be­tween the ex­pan­sive highs of his Great Lengths de­but and this, his third al­bum, Deyk­ers has roamed far and wide from the bass swingers with which he made his grand en­trance five years ago. The Air Be­tween Words is a trip be­yond the dark, twisted house and tech arcs of its 2011 pre­de­ces­sor, Ghost People, a much more son­i­cally ad­ven­tur­ous sweep of sounds and son­ics. Deyk­ers teams up with Four Tet for the haunted thumb-piano sym­phony Glass­beadgames, and there’s a lovely turn from Inga Copeland on the elec­tropop chiller Love of Plea­sure. But Deyk­ers is very much call­ing the shots on where this sleek, play­ful band­wagon is head­ing. A fine dis­play of stylis­tic mus­cle-flex­ing from the Dutch­man. nin­jatune. net Down­load: Glass­beadgames, Love of Plea­sure
