Review: With Rod Modell putting the finishing touches to his next Deepchord album (due for release later in the year on Soma), Echospace partner Stephen Hitchell took the opportunity to record a new solo set of his own under the lesser-known Intrusion alias. "Amongst The Stars", a beguiling, 21-minute chunk of soft-focus dub techno smothered in spacey analogue electronics and the distant sound of traffic, is taken from that forthcoming album. Here, Hitchell's fine "Extended Dub" comes accompanied by a trio of varied but typically atmospheric translations from CV313 (AKA Hitchell and Modell), of which the astonishingly deep "Distintegration Dub" is probably our pick. On the second CD, Hitchell dons his ambient alias, Variant, and delivers an absorbing, CD-length "re-shape" that's as entrancing as it is quietly picturesque.
Review: It's been five years since Echospace man Stephen Hitchell donned the Phase90 alias for "Infinitati", a suitably dark and dubbed-out debut album that remains one of his most mesmerizing releases. All these years on, he's decided to rework three of the album's most potent tracks under one of his other aliases, Intrusion. The heart of the EP is undoubtedly his A-side "Possession Dub" of "Vinci", a quiet, contemplative and effortless spacey dub techno revision that bubbles away for almost 16 minutes. He switches focus on the B-side opening "Remake" of "Infinitati", re-imagining the track as a cloudy and slowly pulsing ambient soundscape, before offering up a "Metamorphose" revision of "Ango" that's as deep and ambient as dub techno gets.
Review: More unreleased and remastered content from dub techno veteran Steve Hitchell aka Radius' Obsolete Machines and Interpolation Tapes projects. Said to have been restored from cassette live recordings between 1995-2000, the project has been on hiatus since 2001. The demos were initially sent to Rod Modell and Mike Schommer shortly after they launched the label, but passed it on to Octal Records for release. Sadly, that didn't materialise. Modell and Schommer dedicated a generous portion of their time remastering the release. From the introspective and personal dub of "Soul Rotation" (unreleased tape mix), the glacial and cavernous immersion of "Culture" (original 12" mix) and not to mention some powerful soundscapes from the great north of Michigan in the form of "Interpolation Tape" Parts One & Six.
