AllMusic Review by

Spanish electro wizard Fibla is that rare producer who neither overdoes the syrupy ambience nor skimps on the all-important pops and glitches. LANDSCOPES is warm and engaging, devoid of the iciness that can plague computer-based music.

"Moviola," "Steck," and the title track douse edgy electro in Iberian sunshine. A flow of downtempo bass softens the switchback breakbeats of "Tildeath" and "Grimm," while an internalized melody keeps "Forest Thoughts" lush, luminous, and green. The shrapnel-and-honey mix of mellow synths and crackling digitalia on "Blick," "Rec Image," and "The Boys" recalls Chilean transplant Atom Heart. And if "Cyn" sounds a little too much like "Envane"-era Autechre, that's no unforgivable crime. LANDSCOPES is ample evidence that Fibla has a voice of his own.
