      The opening track on the album UNOMIA (57'00") by Helios (aka
      Keith Kennif) does something other pieces of modern electronic
      music can only aspire to do... It stays with you... Lilting
      minor key bell-tones echo, build and shift alongside resolute
      rhythms. But the memorable quality of this song rises from the
      sentimentality experienced through its hopeful mellow melody; a
      simple and warm synth line which lingers just long enough to
      stir the memory. Only the ambition of ideas can limit this music,
      and on UNOMIA, his debut album, Helios easily reaches his
      aesthetic aspirations. The mood and energy of this album
      wanders up and down, over and under, in a confluence of
      various streams. The 13 tracks crossfade smoothly one into the
      other - each an engaging interlude of stratified sound. The truly
      ambient, environmental moments are cerebral yet comforting.
      The motion of these impressionistic aural panoramas are
      contrasted by the edges and grainy definition of this album's
      rasping rhythms which profoundly tick and shuffle amidst the
      details of the listener's waking mind. Great stories have a way of
      re-telling themselves, and with UNOMIA, Helios has come up
      with an exceptional, irresistible work which successfully
      connects prevailing trip-hop fun with the depth and space of
      ambient sound design.
