When Ingleton Falls’ cassette ‘Champagne In Mozambique‘ was released in 1993, the tape was housed inside a hollowed-out book from the (fictional?) Ingleton Falls Library. A subtle touch, unshowy considering the album’s limited release, but it’s a mysterious detail that fits in perfectly with the mood of their dubbed-out electronica.
The album contains a range of trippy house sounds and reggae-leaning grooves, but it’s ambient closer Mind Yer Head which really stands out. A woman’s voice gently encourages you to relax and ‘increase your awareness’ as amnesiac synths slip across the delicate arrangement. The drums only ever simmer in the background, never breaking through the heady soup of melodies, a resonant bassline keeping time. It’s music to lose yourself in, and you might never want to be found.
