cedric stevens / leyland kirby / motion sickness of time travel / fennesz - The Syncopated Elevators Legacy
**Limited edition of 500 on 180g vinyl housed in double gatefold jacket featuring exclusive work from Fennesz, Leyland Kirby, Motion Sickness of Time Travel, Sylvain Chauveau and more** Discrepant Records collect nine highlights of Cédric Stevens' oeuvre 1997-2005, backed with new and exclusive revisions by Leyland Kirby, Burning Star Core, Fennesz, Motion Sickness Of Time Travel, Sylvain Chaveau and My Cat Is An Alien. Whilst he's best recognised to raving throngs as Acid Kirk, Cédric Stevens most intriguing music was made on analogue modular systems under the now defunct Syncopated Elevators Legacy moniker and released on his own Elf Cut imprint and Ambivalence recordings from his native Belgium. These recordings are very much "of their time", twisting the established contours of early-mid '90s ambient and experimental electronics with a keener psychedelic edge reminding of certain moments from Jim O'Rourke and early Fennesz, arranging abstract and elusive sounds with intricate, weaving structures and a taste for sweetly soured synthetic dissonance. The album of remixes update and diverge his original material in myriad ways, ranging from Fennesz's plangent tempering of 'Between the Battle and the Sheet', to Burning Star Core's slow, kicking Industrial overhaul of 'Disguised Telescopes On their Way to Planet Bottle' and sumptuous strains of visionary contemporary kosmische from Rachel Evans' MSOTT and Leyland Kirby on the strikingly burned-out Linear Enlightenment mix of 'The Siamese Level'. An excellent collection - and a killer set of remixes.
