New Bola album

I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of my "IDM" faves from back in the day, Bola (Darrell Fitton), has released a new album after a gap of 10 years.

I've only listened through a couple of times so far, and while I wasn't exactly blown away by it all (there are a couple of tracks with quite annoying vocals), at least some of it is up to the standards of his classic albums "Soup" and "Fyuti". Maybe not a great hit ratio, but I'm happy to hear any new stuff of that ilk. The third track in particular is amazing! Beautiful chord progressions, once it gets going....that special Bola vibe:

Reminds me very much of the Gescom track "Five" (from almost a quarter of a century ago), which the Bolaman had a hand in. Similar time signatures / structure, perhaps?
