Boomkat Product Review:
Arne Weinberg's AW-Recordings does the business here, compiling a heavyweight 10 track package featuring cuts from the cream of Nu-Detroit and dub techno producers. Louis Haiman steps to the plate with a swirling electro cut swathed in fathoms deep synth pads, CRC archon is a well studied slice of Detroit techno soul while Alex Leon takes it out there with a beatless darkside spectral composition. Stephen Brown of Transmat pedigree provides one of the album's highlights on 'light rain' with a bright and uplifting 313 jacker, before Convextion appears under his Time light Curve alias. From the opening synth wash it's immediately apparent that we're in the presence of a Gerard Hansen production with his synth driven style of emotional punishment, if you've caught any of his live shows in the last year or so you'll recognise it from the off. The quality doesn't drop from here though, the second disc packs in fresh cuts from the legendary Strand, Ovatow with an awesome dub chord stabs meets electro mutation while XDB chucks in a sweltering club killer. Obsolete Music Technology and Derek Carr fillin the final side with a couplet of sweetened Detroit techno soul, leaving you in exactly the place you want to be. Recommended!
