Moving Sonic Form...
Donnacha clearly remains Donnacha; don’t let the name change fool you, his M.O. is mostly the same. This is Donnacha, except harder...retaining the ‘individual, melancholic, beautiful and the timeless’ .There can be no question that Costello is in electronic music for the long haul. Since his production debut in 1996, he has forged his very own brand of emotional and highly refined electronic music; timeless club music which has consistently found its way into the crates and playlists of house and techno’s biggest DJs.
Plenty of artists reinvent themselves, but few do it with such obvious intent as Donnacha Costello. From his earlier releases on D1. To The Colour Series, to his more recent closing and re-opening of Minimise ....To his new 'Look Long' platform. Here’s an artist who’s carved his own path. Now, with the arrival of MSF, we have yet another iteration of Costello. A just released Electric Deluxe podcast helps chart the influences on his new moniker: Techno new (Pfirter, Traversable Wormhole) and old (G-Man, V-Room). But, as always, with more than enough melody to make those sharp edges dull enough to grab hold of comfortably.

“Over the past five years, James has put out melodic techno records on labels like Plastica, Night Vision and Urban Torque. Minor Obsessions will be his third full-length, following I Am Corrugated from 2008. Like much of James' work to date, the album presents a melodic and emotionally tinged style of techno, with nods to Italo disco and classic house.”
