Banileue Records boss Benoit B lands on Wisdom Teeth with a spacious four-track set of dazzling new-age steppers.

The record follows on the Japonaiserie EP - a stunning tribute to Japanese synth music released last year on Berceuse Heroique.

On Vague à l'Ame, the melodic ideas developed on the Japonaiserie EP are set to work against broken beats and UK-leaning rhythms.

The EP is bookended by a pair of euphoric broken-beat rollers: first, the melodic bleeps and weighted kicks of the title track; and to close, the scuzzy pads and glissando synths of Kimono.

Sat between them are two lean, smokey half-steppers: the record's vocal centrepiece, Gyvenimo Tekme (featuring Lithuanian songwriter Dália), and Ice Valley - an intergalactic slowjam built around dubbed-out bleeps and yearning cluster chords.
