Brian Leeds launches a new alias and a new label with his most droning, room-enhancing work to date. Make Me Know You Sweet hints at the mud-sculpted house grooves of the early Huerco S. releases and the gentle ambient textures of his most recent one, but stretched out even further. It takes the best aspects of Colonial Patterns and For Those Of You Who Have Never, reintroducing subtle rhythmic elements back into his sound palette, but still, every track gives the feeling you’re fully suspended in amniotic fluid with very little to reach out and grab on to. Check out the deep space cargo drift of “NMQ-HYT,” rainforest floor rumblings of “IBX-BZC,” kosmishe ballad “BBN-UWZ” upper mantle fissure of “AAE-KZT” and Kevin Shields shot into space on “OXI-GKK” (even the track titles are ice cold, like they were copy and pasted from software keygens). Forget whatever you consider 'Ambient music' and all the baggage that comes with it; this is true ambience with a lowercase ‘a’, dense sound collages that affect whatever room they’re played in for better or for worse (set it and forget it). Recommended.
