the first new release in 15 years for matt thibideau under the altitude name and its as if he never left. just like his legendary 1998-2001 output on blue recordings, each of these tracks is a deep and dubby analog groove to get utterly lost in. integration could be a new addition to maurizios classic m series, while harmonic scan lays the reverb on even thicker over a dark pulsing bass. stabilizer provides a techier counterpoint more aligned with the deep and driving loops of bluespirit or driftwood. its a pleasure to have altitude back on vinyl in such fine form.
limited repress. for the last 20 and something years, matt thibideau has been involved in making electronic music. in the mid 90s he dove into making ambient and techno music after experiencing some of canadas underground parties. this lead to several releases on blue recordings with matts moniker at the time - >altitude<. under this alias he produced several dub techno classics, but he stopped using it about 15 years ago to work with new german labels. we are happy that after making a comeback on labels like assemble music or helena, matt decided to open the new color series on vade mecum, which focuses on 10inch dub techno styled vinyl.

matt thibideau aka altitude releases his latest original ep on lisbon s helena records, cementing his return to the international scene. anyone who has seen his all-analog live set will be on solid ground here among four extended deep-space soundscapes, which continue the legacy of his legendary blue recordings output. transforming is the slow, cavernous floorfiller with a growling bass of truly physical intensity, while fractional s delayed chords and soft, skipping hi hats form the housiest moment of the record. touch sensor and tantalum on the flip nod to the legacy of mark & moritz (still strong to this day): the former could be a long-lost main street dub, while the latter would not be out of place as a new entry in the m-series.
