The name Bren McGillicuddy may be one that stays with you for quite some time after you listen to his Join With Gold EP. The hazy, hypnotic layers of sound that the Dublin producer has created sound like God Is An Astronaut collaborating with Jon Hopkins and Bicycle & Tricycles-era Orb.
The best place to begin is the title track; you’ll find few better tunes of any genre in 2016. Then it’s on to the rest of the EP; its three tracks, 12 minutes and eight seconds that’s worthwhile immersing yourself in.
