Boomkat Product Review:
Steve Hitchell of Echospace expands his 'Analogueheart' 12" from last year with the original tracks plus additional and completely exclusive productions and alternative mixes. For this release we get the ace 'Drifting Into View', probably the most emotive production we've heard from Hitchell with a piquant line zipped onto a thick deep techno rhythmn with very floor friendly intentions - and it just works a treat. Area's mix of 'Analgoueheart' from the original release is kept intact, with it's rumping abstract groove taking the full 9 mins to develop into a very deep piece of darkly electronic techno. 'Don't U Know Jack' is another new cut, indebted to old skool Larry Heard productions with a grooving Chicago flavour paving the way for a robust synthbass and floating ambient textures, while the original version of 'Analogue Heart' swings back to Detroit with a heads down and late night techno groove on the new 'D Mix'. Final new track 'Remember The Warehouse' reminisces over the good ol' days with a rough and building raw jacker sounding like the original Chicago Warehouse as heard from the ears of a particularly rightous patron 20 years later with muffled kicks leading the way to an uplifting synth line primed for deployment. Very good indeed.
