Function & Vatican Shadow - Games Have Rules mp3 album
You'd think Function and Vatican Shadow, two artists inclined toward big sounds, might adopt even heftier musical modes when they get together in the studio. That doesn't mean we're kept entirely out of the fray. Sequenced to perfection, Games Have Rules opens the valves and lets in a little more tension at each stage. A Year Has Passed" and "A Year Gone By," the album's warm center, introduce the first hi-hat-each hit a little more reverb-laden than the last, it pushes hopeful chords into more ominous melodic territory
Function and Vatican Shadow have combined forces on Games Have Rules for Hospital Productions, simultaneously stripping back each producer's more prevalent production elements - the dancefloor-focused techno structures of Function; the experimental cassette-roots of Vatican Shadow - to create an album of dynamic electronic ambient music, equal parts rhythmic and atmospheric

Given the qualities' of both producers, it's perhaps unsurprising that Games Have Rules is rather good. Like any good collaboration, it tempers the more outlandish aspects of each producer's work, delivering a set bristling with icy textures, bittersweet ambience, dreamy atmospherics and, perhaps most pleasing of all, sprawling techno (see the brilliant "Bejewelled Body").

Vatican Shadow, meanwhile, is an alias of Prurient's Dominick Fernow, a man who may have transcended his noise background some time ago but who is still associated with words like "harsh", "brutal" and "angry". How is it possible, many may ask, that they've turned away from their familiar edginess in favour of ambient music? It's a dumb question, of course. Having said that, it still comes as surprise that Games Have Rules is quite so quiet. I mean, the album is a sonic reflection of the duo's current city of New York (at night), and in my experience, it's not a particularly quiet place. But by dropping the volume levels, Fernow and Sumner hone in on the minutiae of their city at night, the background textures of their experience and the intricate details that mostly go unnoticed by the masses.
