Sundaze 1510

Hello, as the IS zombies are hell bent to convince the world what a peaceful religion Islam is, all they manage to conceive is that submission/islam creates cowards or insane madman believing they are man enough to satisfy the needs of 72 virgins. so funny. Meanwhile confused western islam youth think they have to go there to die for Allah or spread their legs for Allahs murdersquad. It is time all organized religion is forbidden. God, assuming it exists, is not in need of worship that is a human ego thing, if anything i would think the Creator would like to see it's creation respected. Anyone waiting for intervention doesn't understand that such would undo the creation...

Today's Sundazers should have heard these guys before under different monikers as cv313 however they seem to extract some extreme love. These are all rare editions and i can say it's a sound investment if you can lay your hands on one meanwhile here's a digital copy .......N'joy

cv313 is one of the many monikers of the Detroit/Chicago-based electronic music producer Stephen Hitchell (aka Soultek, Intrusion, Variant, etc.). cv is an abbreviation for control voltage, while 313 refers to the telephone area code for the city of Detroit, Michigan. cv313 is commonly described as dub techno, although Hitchell himself does not use the term to describe his music, preferring instead to describe it as merely electronic.

Although it’s a collaborative music project, Hitchell self-identifies as the primary creative force behind cv313. Hitchell’s most common collaborator is fellow Detroit producer Rod Modell (aka Deepchord, etc.). The duo also frequently collaborate under the moniker Echospace in a more egalitarian fashion. Hitchell and Modell have remained intentionally vague and playful about the identities of any other potential cv313 collaborators.

 In an interview Modell stated, “Actually, we’ve never released any information regarding the members behind cv313. It was always intended to be undisclosed. All accounts to that end are extraneous, but one night while walking around Barcelona (El Raval), Steve and I met two strung-out “characters,” and they gave us an extraordinary demo CD-R, and those guys might somehow be involved.”

*Full album release which was available in Japan as a limited edition (300 copies) CD release - featuring unreleased tracks and versions of deepchord tracks & plenty of unreleased cv313 content* Amazing set of live transmissions with nine tracks covering some of the finest in-the-moment versions of deep, dark and dubby classics. The "Live" element gives cv313 license for yet more coatings of static, droney dub textures and astral chord sequences, providing near-infinite variations of his amazingly well wrought theme that will immerse you in hazy textures from the off. Highly Recommended! If you like deep,dubby, atmospheric electronic music then this should blow your mind!

Bonus album The D.E.M.F. - After Party In 2008 is an incredible treat in itself. Never have I heard Modell's compositions so, for lack of a better phrase, messed with; double-beats, stop-edits and flange play are some of the touches added to these pieces. This is hardly just another mix of material you may have already heard. With such 'play' involved these cuts truly have a more unique, 'live' element. Must have been a great party :P Perhaps best of all is the last 20 mintues that changes into a complete chill dub session...

A crucial release if you're a follower of Deepchord/Echospace and company. They're countless as both an act and as a label and always manage to reach the furthest levels of development using only a few sounds smoothly massaging the mind. I would consider this project to be one of the best examples of the less is more theory practically conceived within this style of music. "Beyond The Clouds" is one of those songs, an exercise in insistent cycles and loop annihilations of the deepest end of the Detroit Techno spectrum applied to a deep dub throb. There's a clear focus within the songs here with a nod to the more ambient-leaning excursions of Basic Channel, bedding endlessly delayed stabs resembling some of the early works found in Tangerine Dream, analogic sequences controlled by soul and spirit. After about a month to sink into this I have a feeling 10 years from now this body of work will be referenced as a valuable and engaging lesson in minimal techno history.

Originally released in a micro-run of 10 copies, Echospace present the digital release of Steve Hitchell's 'Beyond The Clouds'. All three tracks were recorded from a live session near the heart of Detroit using hand crafted modular synthesizers, analog devices and custom made effects units. Notably, the release was mastered by Ron Murphy @ NSC Mastering shortly before he passed away.

A live recording which was culled to a 12" single of the same name. A continuous recording extending almost the entire length of the CD in alternate variations of the same song using various samplers and sound manipulation techniques. Includes 2 new versions (out takes) of cv313's classic "Beyond The Clouds" never before heard in any format. There's also 3 beautiful remixes from the brilliant Rod Modell (DeepChord) of cv313's majestic "Seconds To Forever". Two of these haunting reshapes were featured on the digital edition of the release exclusively on Boomkat and the other lost in the vaults.
