LP version. "The aptly titled second album from label head if.then.else. He was forced to put his own music and the operation of the label on hold while serving a six month sentence for marijuana possession. You can now readjust your image of the typical 'experimental' knob-twiddler firing off emails to the IDM list from the confines of mom's house in suburbia. Suge Knight meets the Jedi Knights or Shyne sitting down with Richard Devine is probably stretching the point, but the bottom line is that Pause was conceived at a critical juncture for the artist. Not only was he facing his first incarceration, but also experiencing his longest stretch without his bong in quite some time? and yet, a sense of calm permeates these occasionally brooding soundscapes. We can recognize the warm washed out tones of his first full length Realizations, but a heightened feeling of expansiveness may be a result of his recent interest in the work of Pole. Other possible points of reference might be Bola, Funkstorung, and ambient-era Aphex. Extended bouts of jonesing may also play into the situation to some extent."
