Boomkat Product Review:
Belgium's Aguirre Records present a reissue of Brad Rose's earliest offering as Charlatan. Most of you will require little introduction to the work of Brad Rose, his myriad solo and collaborative works or the output of his Digitalis imprint. But in case you've not been paying attention, his oeuvre is one of the more substantial and far reaching in the contemporary electronic underground. Originally released on cassette for House of Sun, 'Equinox' is a melancholic suite of seven songs to the stars and themes beyond the reach of mankind. Transmitted from lightyears away in his mindspace, they reach us as swooning synthclouds like 'Titan' and the twinkling, teary synth expressions of 'Tetrahedron', or the levitating illusions of 'Seed & Light'. As a bonus for the vinyl lovers, they've also extended the journey via the stunning, wide-eyed intimations of 'Minus Ten' and the lost radar signals of 'From Dust'. Recommended!
