1800haightstreet finally break a years hiatus in the caves of vancouver to come roaring back onto lobster theremin with a bumper album of long-awaited otherworldly techno experiments.
with that classic, depth-charged warehouse sound blending the heavier side of detroit techno with a shot of basic channel atmospherics and a rickety stepped uk edge, this is a real time-stamp set into stone. a spectral rotation through the deeper sides of 4/4 with each slice coated in a dazzling array of synth programming, heavily effected interstellar rhythms and processing that goes from scorched & crusted to clean and undulating as each side is flipped.
a refined and considered document spanning the many elements of techno that sees thumping deepness (vanisher, super intelligent, psychic) collide with crunchy, straight-down-the-line stompers (the ram, endless, razor, diagonal iris), blistering heaviness (flood, intuitionist) and galaxian dub techno (past life memory).
overall, a truly inspiring body of modern techno from one of the finest and most standout new artists in canadian electronic music.
