A long awaited follow up to the critically acclaimed self titled debut (Dead Albatross nominated no less), this is a four track EP of minimal techno repetition from Andrew Johnson (Hood/Remote Viewer). With roots in the deep dark dub of pioneers such as Terrence Dixon, Johnson has been influenced by recent collaborations with Miles Whittaker (Demdike Stare) and has stripped his sound back to ultra repetitive beats and hypnotic dance floor jams. There are four tracks on the vinyl plus extra remixes on the download (BeppuPerfume Advert, Maxim Wolzyn, the Humble Bee and Northerner).

9/10 Ant Staff review, 26 November 2015

Somewhere between Detroit and Berlin - Lancashire to be precise, dwells Andrew Johnson (The Remote Viewer / Hood). Between gobbling up his native cuisine of hot-pots he’s managed to follow up his well received self-titled 2014 long player as A New Line (Related) - back on Home Assembly Music with a spanking 4-track 12” EP.

The title track kicks things off - if you don’t happen to be a DJ spinning this one at a party, my advice here is wait until the neighbours have gone to the caravan for the weekend, and knock the volume up to eleven to fully appreciate the mesmerising hypnotic effects of the loops, repetition and nuance. It’s a very classic techno sound. You can dance or simply lay back and let it rinse away all the mental detritus you’ve accumulated from this cruel world.

‘Belle Ile En Mer Dub Night’ is a lovely soothing, dreamy soulful, grainy dubby techno number with a partially buried vocal loop and ascending synth, building with metallic ticks and woody percussion until it reaches its fully formed bliss inducing state.

‘Nobody's Been In Touch’ has a more funked up, housier swing, all crackly dissolving effervescent effects, recalling Substance & Vainquer’s productions on Scion Versions, maybe a dash of Sistol, Maurizio and Pole floating around in there too.

‘They're Burning Northerners Fifteen At A Time And Firing Them Into The Sky To Light Up London’ gets top marks for its title. A cut that blossoms with gently gurgling bassline, static, and multiple layers of f/x laden shimmering loops that float and hover. Brittle keys ripple in liquid mercury beneath a wall of grainy fuzz, rising like flames.

The EP often has a deceptively familiar sound palette, and on the surface treads a well worn path, but it’s the sounds deeeeep in the mix that pull you in subconsciously, much like the emissions from echospace [detroit] or classic Basic Channel / Chain Reaction - this style doesn't rely on the skeletal, functional elements but on texture and how loops interact - revealing something intangible and partially obscured below the surface and in turn triggering something soul stirring inside the listener. There’s an irresistible charm and melancholy to these tracks that’s consistently warm and inviting, which makes becoming lost in them an effortless pleasure. Basically Andrew's nailed the style - but what makes this EP standout from a zillion sterile clones, is how he channels his personality and character into the sound - so by the time the EP ends, you feel like he's communicated something, like he's had a conversation with you through his machines.

The 12” comes bundled with a digital download of superb remixes from Maxim Walzyn, The Humble Bee, Beppu, Perfume Advert and Northener. Plus our copies include a bonus signed postcard.
