As Roche, Bay Area Balearic boy Ben Winans designs long nostalgic nights with no sign of morning.
On “A Night at the Haç,” his keys converse the epic dialogue of classic house thematics: high notes begging romantic love; low notes daring physical freedom. Acid alien gears turn “Insider Outsider” into pivotless progression, straight ahead until the record breaks.
Side B sees “CG Vision” through a fish-eye lens, all underwater bubbles ’n’ submarine wubbles as the synthy sea swells. Finally, it’s hi-hats off to the FX channel in “Psycho Zombie Dreams,” a tunnel trauma of modulated raunch—seductive, intoxicating and mind-munching. Haç is Boss, now do the work.
