- Nah Und Fern by Gas (Wolfgang Voigt)
9/10 Ant Staff review, 12 June 2008
The eagerly anticipated Gas 'Nah Und Fern' box set which reissues Wolfgang Voight's hugely respected and influential albums originally released on Mille Plateaux in the 90's. The 4CD box is a lovely looking thing with Voight's original artwork. This stuff just perfectly blurs the lines between ambient and techno. Really lush sounding stuff that you can just lose yourself in completely. This has been carefully re mastered and is really full sounding. I like the way some of the tracks make me think I'm in a chill out room listening to ambient but you can hear the distant thud of the kickdrum in the main room in the distance. Like listening to a rave through a wall of dub. It's almost perfect because you can be in two places at one. Just imagine if you could be in bed and in the pub at the same time... Maybe one day eh! It's amazing what they can do these days. I haven't a clue what tracks are on the vinyl though.
10/10 Joe Customer review,
I thought I would check out ambient music again after a long hiatus. I have to be honest and say its not previously been one of my favourite genres. This box set changed all that, perhaps because of the nod towards minimal techno - its just amazing. As you progress chronologically through the CDs the tone gets darker and darker. The more you listen to it the more detail comes out. Its no good for listening to in the car or for something as background noise - you need to immerse yourself into it, preferably in the dark with headphones, and give yourself plenty of time to appreciate it. Ant has already done a good job of describing the style - the sense of being in a chill out room with the bass in the background can bring out the goosebumps - it can send the limbic system into overdrive. Ultimately it is extremely rewarding.The only down side to this CD collection is that the track 'Nah Und Fern' is only to be found on the vinyl edition, and thats a pity as its an absolute cracker. Track down the 2LP vinyl asap.
