Berlin-based Hessler, known for his output on Marcel Fenglers IMF, turns in four tracks that embrace melody as much as peak time heft. Intermission opens with staccato stabs punctuated with slamming percussive hits while Hessler utilises a myriad of tension/release tactics with his arrangement.
While Horizon, next, kicks off with brooding intensity, it steadily opens up into the sort of cinematic beauty that has people clambering to drop a Track ID? wherever possible. Before returning to emotive melody with the electro-influenced keys of closer, Hall, Hessler drops in the clattering rawness of the appropriately titled The Collider.
