What has not been heard before comes into glimpse via analog circuitry, obsolete synthesis & sonic exploration. A passionate, galactic, deep voyage... For all those who believe, from our hearts to yours....

Thoughts:

This is a duo of CDs featuring Stephen Hitchell reimagining Stephen Hitchell. Those that are familiar with Echospace know exactly what they’re getting themselves into and those that don’t need only to listen to the first minute of the first CD to get the gist, because there’s around 110 minutes of gist contained within.

Hitchell is a busy dude, with the label releasing his debut as Phase90 late last year and here we are with an ambient opus that is based on material from 2009’s The Seduction of Silence, which just got a CD re-release and looks to go be set for an LP too. As this is so so long, I can only provide you with a weak skim, a semi-skim, if you will.

If you’re a fan of music that sounds like pure clouds, with only the faintest hint at a kick drum pulsing away its loneliness, then you’ll be at peace with this one. Emotional chords swell out of a mist assembled from subtle, slowly unfolding rushes and cracked twigs echoing into the distance. Everything’s lovely, like dew on the mountains, rainbows on the beach, getting a retweet etc. etc. The highlights of Robin’s day.

More cautious percussion and bass throbs adorn the second ‘Reduction’ disc, which seems like a misnomer as there’s a little more going on beat-wise, albeit very slowly, with a similar backdrop. As a whole, it doesn’t move very far but that isn’t necessary. This is organic dub techno for the mega-spaced times of life, be that sleep, sunbathe, or afterglow. Even the remotest association with techno seems to ruin its innocence. Dub ambient for purity. -Norman
