Visionz Of An Abstract Plane by Scientific Dreamz Of U

This 12" offers up some much delayed and fittingly mysterious techno by the way of Tabernacle Records. 'Visionz Of An Abstract Plane' lives up to its name, mixing together smooth electronic sounds with washes of industrial sound and a bit of traditional electronica. Looking at the titles, too, it's kind of like if techno were a self-help manual.

This Tabernacle release from May this year delivers monstrous dub-pounding beats accompanied by some hilarious gobbledigook song titles. 'Journey in2 the Light {Self-healing & Re-birth}' - U havnt heard jamz like this b4. It's almost a surprise that Scientific Dreamz of U actually gets round to making any music at all, considering the amount of totally trippy images and wordplay that spews forth from the facebook page. Just take a look.

I can't escape oceanic comparisons for a track subtitled 'Sea Re-Immersion', so I'm going to just run with it. The A side is some washy techno drowning in an ocean of bass growls and echo chamber percussion. It's like being stuck in a German submarine with a gloomy Deepchord. An 11-minute running length is hard to keep interesting, but SDoU just about manages it by fading around a patchwork of textures like a nice faceful of salty spray. As is often the case with a lot of dub techno releases, there's also the danger of monotony across the whole 12"; the familiar eye droop of the dubber hits eventually. SDoU has it covered though, as side 2 is a change of style to something simultaneously more uptempo and mean. There's some real tough-guy atmosphere present, with throbbing, single note basses and a full sounding mix, all combining into a sonic kraken. Add some expert analog synth programming (notably near the end of B1) and you have a meaty whale of a release. Perhaps less blubbery than a whale.
