Altering Illusions - Various (Echospace) (2012)

I posted this on Facebook after it first came out before I started the blog, but since then I've spent more and more time with it so I guessed it was time for a revisit.

Detroit/Chicago's now legendary Steven Hitchell and Rod Modell mark 5 years of sub harmonic deep space explorations in some seriously out-there Dub Techno quadrants. From a sprawling nebula of etheric sounds made as Deepchord, Variant, CV313, and Intrusion, the duo have culled a rack of dubs, reworks and brand new material on this, their most substantial release in quite some time. Over two discs, you'll be treated to 13 tracks of purified groove reductions made on vintage analog equipment, teasing out the infidelities of archaic equipment and blending with field recordings which render their sound at its most diffuse and opiated. Lush listening, early morning ease-in or late night fade-out. In a word - awesome.

Massive recommendation.
