Oliver Ho -- The Soft Machine

So I downloaded an album by Oliver Ho "The Soft Machine" -- primarily because he's a mate of ncw and it's really nice techno, in a way that was surprising to me, since I'd always lumped oliver ho in with the 'unrelenting pounding monotonous overcompressed techno' crew.

It stays pretty uptempo, but has nice harmonic flourishes and the odd tasty sample, and unlike most techno long players, you can actually listen to it end to end. So maybe I should figure out how to actually buy it and support the artist.
