Ryan Hunn, also known as producer and DJ Illum Sphere, returns to Ninja Tune with his second full-length, Glass, on November 4th. Glass is fittingly his most crystal-clear statement to date, stretching nine dynamic but focused tracks which are given room to shapeshift within a larger, living whole. Pervading the album is a sense of detachment, most prevalent on standout tracks Fall Into Water and later on Thousand Yard Stare, the albums longest statement at almost nine minutes. Glass follows 2014s Ghosts of Then and Now as the producers second full-length effort, but sonically moves further in the direction hinted by his Spectre Vex 12s and well-received mixes for fabriclive and Dekmantel. The reduction in output over this time a conscious decision to carefully signpost a change in direction. This same shift has also bled into his acclaimed DJ sets - that have previously won him fans in Thom Yorke and Ben UFO - leaving him poised now more than ever to delve into a sound all his own. I wanted to make an album very different to the first, says the producer, one with a different palette, pace and energy. A change in situation and style, as he describes it, replaces the sharp turns and drastic shifts in altitude of his earlier efforts. Glass is a record steeped in mechanical depth and a beating cohesiveness, reminiscent of contemporaries Helena Hauff and Kassem Mosse, and positioning the industrys best kept secretIllum Sphereto have a breakout year all his own. Catch Illum Spheres regular NTS show, every four weeks on the INT stream. Glass is released 4th November 2016 on Ninja Tune.
