"Virgo is Jacen Solo's debut album and follows last year's wonderful Forbidden Medicine EP that launched his name onto the esteemed shoulders of Ai Records. Jacen Solo, or Doug Adamson to be precise, has been reared on a diet of 24-carat machine music, meeting the transfixed breaks and demented edits of Aphex Twin with the elongated pastoral textures of Motor City music and it's purring British counterpart in the shape of B12 and legendary labels like A.R.T. and Likemind. There's also some hip hop thrown into his loop, worshipping the ruffage elucidated so ruthlessly by Stetsasonic and Eric B & Rakim, a myriad sounds forming a DJ style that has accompanied him since the ripe old age of 14. With Virgo, Jacen Solo embarks from the same starting point that made Claro Intelecto so unique -- marking himself precisely between the points where techno and electronica cross arms. It's a rich, oddly beguiling sound that takes in fragmented shards of electro, seductively detuned flute-cut techno, glazed-over daydream house and the windswept seafront parading of late night neon music that doesn't quite have a name yet."
