about

Dancefloor weighted dub-techno and house from Steve Hitchell's CV 313 project. 'Sailing Stars' is a fathoms-deep groove for the floor, setting subbass tones at the threshold of human hearing capabilities to unnerving effect while crisply spacious percussion and currents of analog ephemera cruise the surface. On the flip Hitchell takes the reins with an Intrusion Twilight Dub of the now classic 'Subtraktive', massaged and ready for the floor with a shorter playing time and concentrated vibes before his reformed version of the A-side travels to the edge of space with exponentially echoed atmospheres. For the dub-techno dreamers - an absolute must. -Boomkat

Stephen Hitchell continues to plumb the depths of dub-influenced techno to bring us further crucial low range soundscapes via the Echospace and Intrusion labels. His recent cv313 release “Sailing Stars” found him geting deliciously minimal with the cuts all employing a less is more approach to their output. -Little White Earbuds

Two years after cv313’s debut release (on Smallfish, no less!) and following on from a few 12”s and the, sadly only available in Japan, Live CD comes this cracking new slab of wax.

A three-tracker, it features, for starters, the title track ‘Sailingstars’ which blends to wonderful effect the dubwise undertones of Echospace and Intrusion along with Steve’s trademark Soultek vibe on the rhythms. It’s a groover and no mistake with a 100% hypnotic 4/4 vibe and super-nice chords and sounds that roll beautifully along in conjunction with the lowdown bassline.

Flip over to find two very pleasing versions of ‘Subtraktive’, both from Intrusion. The ‘Twilight Dub’ takes it into stronger rhythmic territory whilst remaining totally true to the original vibe of the track. Heavily sub-bass laden and with those signature chords drifting along over the solid 4/4 it’s exactly the kind of mix a lot of people have wanted. Next up is the Intrusion ‘Reform’ which I really thought was going to be an ambient edit, but after some swirlingly lush pads at the beginning is actually joined by an even more robust kick drum than the previous track. Short, sweet and full of Echospace vibes through and through.

This, as they say, is a winner. Marvellous stuff – and funky looking marbled vinyl too! -Smallfish, London
