This beautiful rework comes from one of the most prolific artists in the scene today, Coppice Hallifax. After years of communication and in-depth discussions on the greater expanse of analog gear, we came to a similar conclusion, Brian's music is certainly built from the same analogue fabric and continues so in spirit with this beautiful replay on variant's productions. He plays variant's "element six" along with sound sources from the ever-expansive "echospace in space" sound library into an ocean of analog soul, dubbed out into a shadowy rich sonic world of his very own. For those of you who adored those obscure Chain Reaction releases, this is most certainly an immense near 70 minute trip you need to take! One for the heads...
A closer look into the production process of Coppice Halifax:
Lights down, amps on, dozens of LEDs flickering across a six-foot worktop. Cool Autumn air whipping at the walls outside the studio, burnt leaves and cinnamon smoke fill the purple dusk. Prepared Element Six tape loops via reel to reel and Tascam four track at the ready, alongside 12 & 32-bit Akai & Korg samplers and some one-shots from the Echoes In Space library loaded into a Volca. A single original input signal, a two-note sub bass sequence coming off a monophonic Korg analog synthesizer, to anchor the sub-marine in the cosmic abyss of FX and white noise. Tape loop source routed through multiple pitch shifters, gates and resonant filters (Moog LPF & MIDI MuRF, Akai Variwah, Digitech Synth Wah), carried on waves of analog and digital delays (Quadraverb, BBE, Boss RV-3, Danelectro, Ibanez, Synthrotek, Nady) and finally channeled through the parametric veins of the Peavey "King Stevie" FX2x24.
