I.A.O. – Phase III
The latest collection of left-field burners from the heads over at Melbourne’s Left Ear Music comes courtesy of enigmatic Berlin group I.A.O. aka Inandout. Shining a light on their third phase of the early 90s, the music which comprises Phase 3 is colored with crystalline downtempo and contemplative MIDI lounge. Working in direct parallel with the rise of Berlin’s then-nascent techno scene following the fall of the wall, the works featured on Phase 3 communicate a feeling of optimism, communion and a belief in what’s possible that runs throughout.
