A product of the Thin Recordings label, Thin Films represents the talents of label founder Dan McRae. As the ID suggests, McRae's music has already been commissioned for soundtrack work and 'Eskimo' is not only evocative but also often overtly melodic. In the case of 'Lure Of Time_String Theory Remix' there's multiple layers of creativity, 'Polar Bear' offers walls of haunted ambience and - in keeping with the wintry theme - the beats on 'The Awakening' resemble the sound of crunching ice. Yet the highlight has to be 'Endless Days'; a stunning near-classical melody underscored by trip hop beats and a throbbing bassline. 'Eskimo' may be encased in frosty electronica but it deserves a warm reception.
