Listen/purchase: Evacuation Routes by The Genie and GB
This collaborative EP brings together two experimental musicians in a context new to both. The Genie, known in the American festival circuit for his guitar looping and processing techniques, finds himself in an unfamiliar yet comfortable setting where his guitar work compliments and elaborates on the synthesized soundscapes provided by GB. Recorded spontaneously in two brief sessions, these improvised pieces encompass a fresh energy neither artist would have encountered on his own.
released 05 June 2013
The Genie: modified guitar and effects pedals
GB: engineering, synthesizers, drum machines and additional effects processors
Seventeen years after it’s first release, Delsin is soon to hit the landmark catalog number of 100. Truth is, taking into account choice re-issues and specials such as the recent house series, there have already been scores more than 100 releases. Nevertheless, in that time the Dutch label has become synonymous with a wide range of timeless sounds from house to techno to dub to electronica, nurturing and championing some of the most respect names in the scene.
To mark the occasion, the label is to release five new various artist EPs throughout the rest of the year. Besides a special collector’s box edition, all EPs will be offered separately. All fifteen tracks will also be compiled onto one CD.
“After many different life cycles, with this compilation I try a bit to go back to the core of Delsin, to showcase more soulful but still raw techno sounds from a selection of key artists who best represent the label,” says label boss Marsel Delsin. “The tracks are all individual offerings but are tied together with the common themes of the label, and as a compilation will paint a nice overall picture.”
The five EPs will contain tracks from newbies and old favourites alike, including Sawlin and Delta Funktionen, John Beltran and Conforce, Redshape and Herva, Ross 154 and Mike Dehnert and more. The first – like all of them – features three tracks, one each from Gerry Read, Unbroken Dub and Claro Intelecto.
Its Manchester’s Claro Intelecto who goes first with ‘Fighting The Blind Man’, a typically widescreen and atmospheric cut with rich but grainy pads, warm techno pulses underneath and plenty of expertly design synths gurgling in the foreground.
New school house hero Gerry Read then offers a typically rough jam, ‘Granny Bag’. A melange of sandy hits, smeared synths and hunched kick drums, it might be one of his deepest cuts yet before Siberian producer Unbroken Dub then layers warm pads on rolling, buried deep kick drums and has all sorts of analogue sci-fi lines racing across their face.
As has done Delsin itself over the years, this special series of releases looks to join the dots between the past, present and future of techno.
