Ship-Scope by Shinichi Atobe

Shinichi Atobe first put Ship-Scope out into the world way back in 2001, on the highly respected and dearly departed Chain Reaction label. Now it’s out again, this time on DDS, for a new generation to enjoy its atmospheric electronic haze. Sort of ambient, but with a glitchy kick to it. Only one of these hand-stamped reissue 12”s each please!

So this is what they've all been banging on about. The recent release of 'Butterfly Effect' on Demdike Stare was the first new music from this lost techno dreamer since the early 2001's. Having not remembered him the first time around I didn't get too excited ....until I heard it and realised that the original stuff must be quite something. The A side of this re-issued 12" originally on Chain Reaction, contains three slabs of dreamy techno that finish just when you want them to keep going forever. A love this almost vignette feel to the music which taunts you saying "look what you could have had". The pick of the three is also the longest 'Plug and Delay' is a wonderfully wobbly slice of splodgy electronics that sounds like techno running through puddles in the rain. I'm also very partial to the very brief 'Rainstick'.

Over on the flip there's one long track 'The Red Line' which is pillowy and dreamier than the other tracks and probably the best thing here with it's sweeping melodic synths and acid squiggles. I think that this lovely re-issue is coming home with me tonight.
