Comment: by listening to this set of 14 tracks by a talented Estonian musician and music reviewer Florian Wahl aka Anton-Babinski who has issued some issues before that but the recent one is his top tier undoubtedly. It could be denoted contemporary soul music being littered with nowadays technical possibilities and effects yet the soulful core of it will not get lost among it. However, it is partly true because the extent of the styles is wide in a more or less way. Furthermore, it is soul searching of the artist where hovering longing passages are either adorned with autotuned vocals or exquisite beats or wondrous synthesised ghosts or suggestive sighs or chopped and screwed flickers. On the other side, it could be said at times the cinematic side of Anton-Babinski comes in and that`s very appreciated. By the way, his sound is frequently tagged as ghost pop though it might say way too little and be misleading about Wahl`s intentions. One of the most pre-eminent points is Cherry Fairy which obviously is based on Animal Collective's wondrous Loch Raven with all those ghastly yet enchanting higher frequencies and capturing fadeouts. All in all, it is a great issue from 2016.
