Boomkat Product Review:
*Unreleased and re-mastered versions of early Soultek, most of which is unavailable in any format* The irrepressibly productive Stephen Hitchell coaxes more ghostly imprints from Chicago and Detroit classics on this collection of early works dating from 1993 to 2000. 'Reflective' includes five previously unreleased songs along with two tracks taken from analog tape recordings of live performances at an after party for the first ever Detroit Music Festival, lending a authentically spectral resonance to the proceedings. There's an energy about tracks like 'Groove Control' and 'Spaceman' that you won't find in more recent echospace releases, from the moe up-tempo nature of the tracks, to the preference for spacey Convextion alike synths and raw pumping Dance Mania styles on 'Soul Twist'. Its an enlightening, introspective and varied look at an essential cog in the post-Basic Channel world of Detroit and dub techno, connecting the cities of Berlin and Detroit like few others. Highly Recommended.
