Here we have a tasty 6-track LP from Andreas Tilliander on iDEAL Recordings. The very thought of music taking a dubwise approach to acid conjures nightmarish visions of dreadful psychedelic trance chill out rooms and 90’s head shops. But trust me, you’re in safe hands here, cuz Tillander is pretty fucking great - a man truly at one with his machines. If you’re familiar with his Mokira, TM404 etc. output you know what I’m talking about. At this point in my life I must have heard a zillion dub techno and acid records but I’m yet to hear anyone else connect both styles in the way Tillander does. We’ve heard these Roland machines so many times and yet the way he makes them sing together feels pretty fresh.
Opening cut ‘Twilight Circus’ is superbly atmospheric with smoked out trails of effects, slow creeping, Plastikman style acid, metallic shimmering and melodica appearing here and there. The overall effect like being in a smoke filled room where the walls are mirrors. The title of ‘Mokirian Tekno Trak’ is a dead giveaway; deep, stepping dub techno - complete with pleasurable skeleton rattling subs. ‘FR777 Skank’ reduces the tempo for some aquatic wobble action that’s like skanking at the bottom of the ocean. The slow building 303 that appears really elevating the energy as it switches gear.
‘Open Up The CV Gate’ gets going with snaking 303 and rim shots, crackling electronics and builds with sci-fi strings and a weird sound that’s like some sort of sonar communication from an unknown lifeform. The amusingly titled ‘Return Of The Super Tape’ chugs along with a heavy, syrupy stomp and all sorts of trippy loops plus more of that subtle use of the 303 he does so well. ‘Syncussion Discussion’ closes the record where he has a few 303’s on the go, seemingly chattering with one another over sparse drums. One of them sounds pretty sad, like his wife left him for a 707.
