8/10 Jamie Staff review, 06 June 2017

Think neon shop signs glaring through rain-streaked night-bus windows around 2 AM, because I am. Oh, excuse me reader: I am listening to the artificial sounds of Echium and their transportative frequencies taking me back to a place and time that I’m pretty sure only happened in my mind, just a moment ago, via this ‘Synthetic Space’ record. It’s a long-playing black vinyl disc with a groove that moves inexorably onward to the centre, taking you along for an Echospace-y / kosmiche / dub-techno ride as it does so.

Having scoured the ‘web for all of 3 minutes for more info, I have come out with empty hands but this release from the brand new Sferic imprint is appropriately ethereal; oozing eerily as it does with the ghosts of many a musician from the electronic world and beyond, converging along the Berlin - Manchester - Detroit axis. Mysterious and grainy sounds materialise, effervesce and evaporate throughout. The press release stresses that this is a reassuringly Manc release. The record’s commendably lo-fi yet futuristic sonics reinforce this message.

Taking things to their literal conclusion, there is actually a track entitled ‘Ethereal’, on Side B track 1... I mention it now I notice it. It features weird alien sounds / stabby electronics with deconstructed electro components, if you want to know. Also features the sounds of cyborgs dreaming... maybe...amongst the spacey bleeps. I recommend especially to those of you who have a soft spot for the works of both Shinichi Atobe and Rod Modell. Also, there aren’t too many of these floating about. I’d buy it if I were you.
