Chromesthesia is an almost hour long track that slowly transforms itself through different pallets of noise. Building itself to an eventually colorful whole, Variant’s newest project is one that is absorbing and all-encompassing, hypnotizing and disorienting and will eventually make you wonder where you are and how you got there.

One of the most comforting things in the world is the music of Variant. Stephen Hitchell's sublime gaseous reductions of ambient techno are amongst the finest in the world. Like a sleepier take on the hissing, spectral aural atmospherics of his collaborative project CV313 with Rod Modell, this is the first occasion that this two-segment trip has been released to a wider audience. With a feather-light percussive depth charge guaranteeing this baby won't be bothering the neighbours, Hitchell smothers your mind with these delicious, morphing, shifting waves of Aether-bound beauty.
Another contemporary example of electronic music being truly psychedelic and transcendental without even trying. As a stress head, I find true musical meditation coming to calm my ass down in the compact disc form, here, in my hand and now on my Technics for the fourth time since last night. I may not even relieve myself of my dressing gown today. Somnolence-baiting spiritual dub for cosmic dreamers.
