sonofdistantearth finally releases his debut Parachute EP, exploring a raw and textured blend of techno ideas drawing from the epic melodic techno of US artists such as Levon Vincent whilst evoking the desk-crushing saturation of the very same East Coast noise-techno scene.
Proper warehouse jams for serious heads, the epic 'GAZA2' kicks off proceedings with a deep, thundering drum loop washed over by high-rise pads and twinkling, crystal melodies.
'Idyll' comes roaring out of the blocks on a serious techno liberation mission. Bone-shaking low-end and clattering, rough-up hats crash through a wall of arped-to-hell synth-warmth. A 9 minute mind-bender for underground freaks.
On the flip there's a special 45 cut of 'Koan', a thrifty bongo-techno number that hammers home loop-world theory and evokes the distant, time-bent world from whence SODE came.
