Ok, based on first listen, I'm getting something close to "classic" Sandoz, maybe not with quite the melodic hooks.
All the "Sandoz" elements are there: tribal rhythms, disembodied ethnic chants, simple melody lines, just enough electronic grit to stop it being too "pretty"...the last track "Nightmail", which although I really like it, strays into the area of something from an ethnographic study with what could be its ethnic pipe/flute sample
A cautious thumbs-up, may well be a grower...

Just downloaded both the full-length and the EP ... After a 1st listen, I can say it sounds "smooth" like earlier SANDOZ releases (Digital Lifeforms, Intensely Radioactive) which sounds good to me ! It fits nicely with other stuff I've been listening to today (THE FIELD, R. VILLALOBOS, CRASH COURSE IN SCIENCE (remixes & originals), SIRIUSMO, ...).
Having 4 version of a single track on the EP is perhaps a bit overkill, but it's always good to have new RHK works, although a physical release would of course have been great.
