1800HaightStreet - Endless
1800HaightStreet finally break a years hiatus in the caves of Vancouver to come roaring back onto Lobster Theremin with a bumper album of long-awaited otherworldly techno experiments.
With that classic, depth-charged warehouse sound blending the heavier side of Detroit techno with a shot of Basic Channel atmospherics and a rickety stepped UK edge, this is a real time-stamp set into stone. A spectral rotation through the deeper sides of 4/4 with each slice coated in a dazzling array of synth programming, heavily effected interstellar rhythms and processing that goes from scorched & crusted to clean and undulating as each side is flipped.
A refined and considered document spanning the many elements of techno that sees thumping deepness (Vanisher, Super Intelligent, Psychic) collide with crunchy, straight-down-the-line stompers (The Ram, Endless, Razor, Diagonal Iris), blistering heaviness (Flood, Intuitionist) and galaxian dub techno (Past Life Memory).
Overall, a truly inspiring body of modern techno from one of the finest and most standout new artists in Canadian electronic music.
