Boomkat Product Review:
Deep techno and mystic wave audness from the aesthetic phase shift of ’92-’94, researched and compiled by Amsterdam’s excellent Knekelhuis camp
Hustling four tracks by artists whose practice began in the ‘80s and continued into the ‘90s, ‘Transition Vol.1’ smartly identifies sounds in flux between live, performance-based recording techniques and the computer-based styles to come. All the tracks were produced between ’92-’94 and bear the hallmarks of a natural shift from sinuous, unquantised designs into the halcyon era of early ‘90s ambient and techno paradigms.
Up top, Canada’s ADSR exemplify this phase shift with the fluid early trance techno flow of ‘Infinities Of Life’, and UK obscurities Cacophony ’33’ yield a rough gem with the mystic dark ambient appeal of ‘Old Codger III’, which hits right between the eyes of Muslimgauze and PWoG. Rome land on the B-side with a warm bath of ambient dub full of melancholy pads and wistful whale calls that feels caught between new age and trip hop, and Zen Paradox make this plate kinda crucial for anyone scouting this region and era with a sound strongly comparable to The Connection Machine in ‘Say Goodbye to the dark Place’.
