Ryan Hunn, AKA Illum Sphere, is founder of Manchester's renowned club night Hoya:Hoya, has remixed Radiohead, toured the world's best club nights and released music on some of its finest imprints - 3024, Tectonic, Young Turks, and now Ninja Tune, where he's found a long term home. His album arrives on the back of eager expectation. If anyone seemed set to make one of the standout albums of the era, it was Illum Sphere. The good news is that he's delivered in spades. 'Ghosts Of Then And Now' has been deliberately and uncompromisingly conceived as a full length record; an album in the traditional sense, full of music that couldn't be more modern, whilst nodding to Hunn's various influences. 'Ghosts Of Then And Now' is further proof that electronic music is taking giant leaps forward. This is a record so rich in ideas, themes, textures and writing that it will draw the listener in time and time again. As such, it will take its place alongside the best works in the form.
