I doubt that on my grave stone it will say “he liked a bit of dub techno” or if it will be even commented on in the obituaries. You see, its not a massive part of my life, I mainly like and do other things. But, put a bit of good quality late night atmospheric techno on and I’m pretty much anybody’s. Therefore,  I have been loving this quality re-issue on Type. Its flabbergasting that this record was originally released in 1999 as it hasn’t dated at all and sounds remarkably fresh.

The album moves along superbly,  through washes of reverb,  the kick drum thuds metronomically throughout, slithers of dub hits slide in and out of the mix. The main thing that has to work with music like this is that it transports your mind to somewhere else entirely. Usually to me its factories on the outskirts of manchester, or driving on some lonely, lost East Lancs highway, the car powering forward as the rain lashes down. But whatever you get out of it, this album is expertly done. A record that helped define the Berlin imprint Chain Reaction, it was actually made by a Greek producer Kostas Soublis and has been lovingly remastered for this release by Matt Colton.

The key, I think to the success of this record is the all analogue approach with allows the tape to be saturated in an old school manner creating warm, organic production. Despite this, the album retains a hard propulsive edge, it sits perfectly on the cusp of tougher, beatier techno and the gorgeous washes of sound now produced by the likes of Deepchord. Very highly recommended, comes on ‘nice price’ CD or the wide grooves of double vinyl.

It's a huge part of my-still-growing-electronic-culture that is now at least reedited... Awesome. Cheers.
