DEEP CHORD - Vantage Isle (Echospace Detroit)


"Vantage Isle" also boasts a rare remix effort from Convextion, three new Deepchord mixes and four versions from Echospace - there are 10 tracks here spread across 6 sides of vinyl, beautifully mastered and cut in Detroit by the legendary Ron Murphy and handpackaged by the Echospace crew with all the bespoke attention to detail you might expect from a package of this nature. The music, well, its just vintage Deepchord : kicking off with the mighty DC version of the title track, a lilting Maurizio-style killer that seems to hover over its own percussion with a million shards of space-echo and reverb breaking out of the mix - pure, hazy brilliance. The debut Echospace "Glacial" mix is up next and more or less sums up what this collaborative pairing is all about - a towering wall of fuzz and washes of delay drench the mix in a cascading variation of the primary dub sound-palette, an analogue leviathan that just blew my mind listening to on headphones - mighty, mighty stuff. On to the Convextion mix : and you get just about what you expect - the spacial hemorrhage of the original squashed into a pulsing BASS killer, sparse yet menacing, the chords taking on their own signature sound - deconstructing and re-building itself into something you could only really describe as epic. The bonus 7" (pressed on lovely transparent vinyl) offers up another version each from Deepchord and Echospace and rounds things off perfectly - the Basic Channel continuum once again casting its incantation over its legions of drooling followers, with this release finding one of their most sought-after, well-realised transmissions to date. in boomkat [Para Ouvir]
