HKE has already released one album for Olde English Spelling Bee, a loose and explorative bundle of outsider electronics with a noticeable sci-fi flair, so a return to form is what’s expected here. Thankfully, the artist has not disappointed one bit and, in fact, Dragon Soul sounds like an even more accomplished and balanced piece of work.

HKE - Dragon Soul HKE (or Hong Kong Express) is David Russo, the founder of Dream Catalogue, a label that arrived in 2014 as vaporwave took its last gasp. Less than a year later, Russo and Dream Catalogue led the charge into a new era, where vaporwave artists transformed their music into something more amorphous and traditionally ambient. Dragon Soul is full of depressive synths, wounded vocals and grandiose crescendos. The bubbling trance synths that weave through "Inverted Sandtimer" are among the album's prettiest sounds, while the sad drift of "Alone Together" is a convincing stab at Burial melodrama. Ambulance sirens and far-away speech samples ghost through several songs, while "Dragon Circle" has all the brass of an action movie soundtrack. Eternal Return" features an achingly sad melody that shows HKE can do simple emotion as well as grand gestures.
