Eraldo Bernocchi & Netherworld :: Himuro (Glacial Movements)

Six slabs of sonic ice sculpture slide glacially along an ambient-techno cline, threads spread below an oceanic surface over which floats a sonorous mass pulsing slow dub hyp-gnosis; narcotic guitar shards and environmentalia.

2VIEW :: Mind over MIDI / Submersion (diametric.)

The permeation into experimental electronica of noise as ‘instrument’—be it clicks’n’cuts or static wash—may be traced back two decades—to Pole‘s early re-cons of Basic Channel studio detritus and sundry Mille Plateaux. Evidence the tradition is still going strong comes in two releases from diametric., whose curator, Arne Weinberg, might have purpose picked Mind Over MIDI and Submersion as exhibits of the scope for artists […]

ALAN LOCKETT :: Dalliance #5 mix

Dalliance #5 locates itself at the more ambient end of the Dub Techno spectrum—where the dub is massive trailing atmo-smears of echo and reverb (call it ambient), and techno is the kick inside.

A closing serving suggestion might be that Slow Beauty is best consumed less in full-on focused home listening mode than in expansive semi-distracted mix dosage. Dub Techno. It never dies, but its still-smouldering embers keep being re-stoked into new dub-smoke and tech-flames.
