On his debut solo album “Hope Is The Sister Of Despair” under the alias Microphase, Niko Tzoukmanis clearly confesses his roots in 90s ambient techno, UK electronica as well as the techno sound of Detroit. He creates unique sound spheres and melodies that won’t leave the ear canal after repeated listens. “Lost In Space” is a very epic track which lives up to its title and takes enough time to build up a tension that is penetrated by breathtaking dystopian sounds. “Shining Star” is another highlight that is dedicated to the melodic Detroit sound without using a kick drum. The blissful “Relief” has a stunning melody and harmonies, while “Free Hugs” turns toward the pure beauty of sound. “The End” has a slightly tragical tone and closes a coherent and harmonic album.
