Since 2003, multi-instrumentalist and composer Keith Kenniff (aka Helios) has been a mainstay in the electronic music/IDM community with releases on influential labels such as Merck Records and Type Records as well as countless remixes and compilation appearances. His signature blending of electronics, ambience and found-sounds have garnered attention from some of the top music critics in the industry. Kenniff's cinematic soundscapes have also caught the ear of the film world both under Helios and his piano-based alter-ego Goldmund, with music appearing in feature films such as Mister Lonely by acclaimed director Harmony Korine, documentaries for the BBC and a trailer for the film Revolutionary Road. Following the release of the 2008 album, Caesura (TYPE 042CD/LP), on Type Records, Helios returns with Unleft, a collection of previously-unreleased material from his past four releases spanning almost a decade. Songs range in style from the Boards of Canada-influenced "Bounce Dive" to the slow-moving ambient drone of "The Jaguar Sun" to the earthy beats and quietly enveloping melodies of songs like "Carry With Us" that have become part of Helios' signature sound. As with his previous albums, Helios' music evokes a certain lost nostalgia from the listener; melancholic and contemplative yet hopeful as the sun's rays shine in through the clouds. Those already familiar with Keith's music will find familiar threads leading back to the previous four albums, while giving newcomers a good introduction to his prolific body of work.
