On his brilliant 2010 LP Emerald Fantasy Tracks, UK producer Matt Cutler combined breakbeat's hyper-speed rhythms with the winsome, glowing tones associated with Boards of Canada, resulting in a gorgeous flurry of emotional electronic music that transcended nostalgia-tripping. "Crystal Caverns 1991" is the first single from Cutler's follow-up to that LP under his Lone guise, Galaxy Garden; as the title suggests, he's looking to the past again, turning his ears to early 1990s rave-- but, again, this isn't just about the past. The aggro-playful synth stabs and clipped vocal samples that are interspersed throughout provide visceral pleasure, but what's most impressive about "Crystal Caverns 1991" is Cutler's gift for unleashing beatific moments at just the right time, from the yo-yo bloops that hit midway throughout to those BoC-like tones layered under the tune's bubbly melody.
