'The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the fidgety beats and creamy chords of "Flay," the opening track on Hoavi's new album, is ambient jungle, the wistful sound championed by Paradox's alter ego Alaska and classic records on LTJ Bukem's Good Looking label. But just when it seems to slot into that framework, the Russian producer introduces twitchy percussion more associated with footwork, his rhythms shaking and shimmying across an expanse of icy reverb. Combining footwork, jungle and dub techno, Hoavi takes three genres with distinct sonic identities and makes them his own. Invariant is unique because it's peaceful and meditative even at its most blistering.' (Resident Advisor)
