We gave it a B+

Don’t be thrown by looney-tune titles like ”Cosmic Dance of Shiva” and ”Paradox of Time Dilation.” On his first album Themes From Vapourspace (ffrr), Mark Gage, an electronic composer also known as the one-man group Vapourspace, will talk sense to your ears, especially if you’re anxious about hitchhiking on the information superhighway. Spanning the globe of techno (reverberating beats, ambient swoops, symphonic sampling suites), Gage toys empathetically with your headphones, as if he actually cared how your future sounds. B+
